A lovely little water park suitable for young children. Tipping bucket and spray jets will keep them cool. It is well placed on the esplanade where the whole family can enjoy a lazy picnic.

So much fun! Immediate cool down for the kids without having to hit the sandy beach. Water park is well maintained and clean. Seats for carers. Toilets nearby. Not much shade though.

It's free water park to play for anybody. I've never seen a free water park with a big bucket in the sky... Kids love this. Adults can sit down under the shade near by. There was a clean public toilet and normal kids playground near...More

It’s free of charge. It’s well designed and looks so fun. It seems suitable for young children. We watched for a while and decided to leave coz daughter is too “old” for it.

Although it is small area the xhildren had so much fun. The tide was out too so the children walked (not me) way out on the muddy sand and found literally 50+ starfish. Which I quickly had to put back in the mud.

Water Park is perfectly located in the green beach side park. Great for family fun, including grandparents. Lots of shady trees. Fantastic views. Caravan park is nearby as are the local shops. Ample street parking. Free fun! Perfect

Fantastic water park. Although it's a little detour off the highway into Bowen, it was worth it to let our son have a play. There were mini water slides and lots of refreshing water sprays. Good shade too.

Waterfront, easy parking with plenty of seating and BBQ areas. beware the black cockatoos, they are in the overhead trees, eating the fruit and throwing it with force to the ground below.

yes there is, it's right across the road and up about 1-200 metres. The caravan park is right on the waterfront
