  • The best thing about this is it's free, which is hard to come by these days! Would be good for little kids because of the splash zone. It has one water slide which the line wasn't too long! Nice spot ...  more »
  • We had a bit of spare time during our trip and enjoyed this spot great place to cool off free! Plenty of shaded areas, life guards and there was a kiosk to keep you hydrated 
  • What a great family spot swimming water slide and BBQ areas. Life guards on duty close to the shopping centre. Also a lovely walk along the pioneer river

  • It's always clean, beautiful views. A great place for a family bbq or day out. Kids play areas are safe and look like fun.
  • Love coming here with the kids. Great as it is free! Quite busy in the hot weather, but still great. Quite a lot of kids parties here. BBQ facilities & a cafe on site.
  • Awesome lagoon for local Mackay residents and travellers passing through. Great family outing that doesn't cost you anything. Close to shopping centres and eateries around the place.
  • Great place to chillax, needs more water slides! The one 10m looking kids one is a tad lame
