Big pool great for a swim, kids pool too cold. Lots of space. Toilets not clean - too much water on the floor and no hooks behind doors in showers. Closes too early (5:45) in the middle of summer when it's still light until after 7pm.

The water was a good depth, the entrance fee was free, it is located right next to the bike path and near the local canelands shopping centre.

I am constantly taking my daughter to the Bluewater Lagoon. It's a real highlight in Mackay. I recommend it to anyone visiting.

This is a lovely venue for families - free admission, great for BBQ's and family picnics. There is a smaller pool for babies and toddlers and a larger pool for older children. There is a cafe that sells drinks and snacks, although you can take in your own refreshments.

I have only visited this attraction a few times but this was a first with my young child. Plenty of options from shallow to deep. Well supervised by lifesavers and clean.

We discovered this local aquatic park just behind our hotel-apartment. The pools are huge and water temperature refreshing. Highly recommend a visit!

We stopped for a quick dip, great to see well patrolled, family orientated environment. As we travel with a dog it would have been a bonus to have a section where dogs can be inside the grassed area, as no dogs allowed she sat out front while we had a quick dip to cool off
