Had a great time at the basin on Australia Day. The area was buzzing with people, Food stalls and sand sculpting on the sand of the basin. Plenty on the northern end enjoying the cool safe swimming area. Top place to take young kids.

We enjoy taking our grandchildren here at all times of the year. It is equipped with seating and playgrounds, and the beach is fun for a swim or for sand Castles! Food is also available nearby.
