  • Discovered this place by chance and spent a wonderful afternoon relaxing in the water and in the beautiful gardens. Pools and gardens were very well maintained. Change rooms and toilets clean. Plenty of parkung. And best part of all - it was free. If I am ever in the area again I would definitely visit again.
  • Great place to cool off. The kids loved it. But still hadn't replaced the shade Sails from previous cyclone.
  • We ordered 2 wraps from the kiosk for a quick bite. Took over 30 minutes. We were informed that they were waiting for chips that we were unaware of being part of the meal. The chips were well worth the wait.
  • Family fun at it's finest in Mackay. It's free, safe and not crowded. Perfect for tourists too
  • Really fun experience for the kids and the kids at heart. Fun and relaxing way to spend time with family.
