Nice big carpark by the water. Swimming and fishing is allowed. Only 8 spots available for SC vehicles though so better come in early. Easy bike to some shops. Public toilets are quite close enough, roughly 200-300m away, not the greatest but its ok, could be better also closed at around 7:30pm (based on experience) lol. Nice big grassy area for picnics and other activities. Recycling bins and rubbish bins available. Could get a bit noisy and busy with the freight trains operating and boat ramp users during the day but not too bad might be a problem if you're a light sleeper. Bonus is there's a new dump station just outside the car park that's so new, it doesn't exist on apps or google maps yet.

One of the more safe feeling spots in town. Haven't been bothered by boy racers hooning around or by partiers with loud music like in other spots. Some trains now and then and some mozzies at night but all in all not much to complain about.

Sooo many mosquitoes. About 30 flew into my van in only a few minutes and kept me up all night. Do not recommend
