Great variety of shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from, for all ages. There is also "Aqua", an aquarium experience with a major number of aquatic wildlife on display. Excellent through summer, although sometimes a little too busy.

We have been going there for years (we are from Adelaide), our son loved the secluded beach area and play areas and we love the vibe, shopping and the restaurants over looking the water. Fantastic views and hang out.

It is not actually a dog beach. Many people walk their dogs along the board walk on a lead, there is a coffee shop behind the yacht club that is dog friendly and provides water bowls etc.
