  • A great place for family meeting and BBQ Nice place to relax
  • A fantastic place for bird photography. A huge variety of all birds, not just water birds. Highly recommended.
  • Great place for a picnic lunch with family and friends. They have gas BBQ's and picnic tables and in a lovely setting with ponds and wild life. Highly recommended for a place to get together or just a casual stroll to admire the wildlife but take some insect repellent as there are a few mosquito's in some areas.
  • Beautiful location just between the beaches. Heaps of birds to watch. A few mosquitoes but I think it was due to the wet season. I'll be back in the dry season
  • Lovely place to be immersed in the natural fauna and flora of Cairns
