We enjoyed driving right to the end of East Point Reserve. Beautiful views, exquisite colour of the water, lots of families enjoying a picnic. We did the Monsoon Forest Trail which is an easy, flat walk, suitable for ages! Saw many birds.

Come here for a picnic or a stroll, a nice time, bring the kids. It is absolutely wonderful; on the way back stop at Trailer Boat Club for a nice cool drink and watch the sunset.

The colour of the bay is just amazing. early morning the wallabies are in abundance. The picnic areas are clean, lawn mowed and we spend a lovely few hours there enjoying the scenery and a walk in the park.

Get out in the dry season for the best sunset photos ever. Lots to see before evening, the military museum and WW11 remnants of the defence storage.

The drive to the East Point Reserve is very nice, hugging the coast on one side and some fields on the other. There were a number of wallabies grazing and hopping around when we were there. There are some nice views of the bay and...More
