  • Great place for a walk or a picnic. Plenty of parking and there's Cafes close by. Sunset provides the city with a lovey hue 
  • I frequently visit this place as it is just nearby Elizabeth Quay station. Best place for photography, picnic, outing, fun, best atmosphere, ambiance. For all age group of people 
  • Wine cruise up the river. Out on sons boat up the river to the open sea. Beautiful to sea. Well worth going out on the river.
