There is dedicated parking on View Street. However you will have to access via Station Street and then down Cook as Bay Street is one way east.

Things To Do


Playground is well maintained with two swingsets, climbing bars, slides and more. It’s located next to the picnic area and a good distance from the river making it a good family spot.

BBQ and Picnic Facilities

Plenty of shade, undercover seating and functional BBQs and a coal grill make this a nice riverside picnic spot.


While you can fish here the Cooks River is polluted so catch and release. See signage onsite for more details.


A couple of commemorative indigenous artsworks are installed along the walking path.
