  • Beautiful lagoon with picnic facilities. Limited sheds and parking around. Be aware of roaming snakes: read sign boards. Children love water slides.
  • Took my three year old for a swim today. Very well kept and lots to keep him entertained. Very well maintained. Impressive for a free activity
  • Good for little kids. Other than that yuck. Felt sticker after getting out than before going in
  • WOW WOW WOW. After driving for 3-4 hours we needed a pool and some food. This place is gorgeously well kept, has chips and PANCAKES to die for (prices very reasonable). Lifeguards and a separate kids pool keep you sane. Please visit this spot, they have 4hr free parking, toilets and showers - all modern and clean!
  • 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.
