So cool, kids love it!

The best for kids .... along a revamped beachfront that needed a leg up. It is a well designed place for families with children to hang out!

This free water park is located on the foreshore under beautiful canopy of trees. My daughter and I have spent hours chasing through the water spouts and waiting for the huge cascade to hit us as the bucket fills to tipping point above our heads. A stroll along the boardwalk also gives plenty of information about the world's water supply... More

I think one of the best free council water parks I have ever been to with 6 1/2 year olds and teenagers. Great fun only disappointment was no slide for a grandfather.

Fantastic place to take the kids on a hot day. It was scorching the day we visited and the place was packed. The kids loved it and best of all it's free!

A fabulous free water park that is something different from swimming in the beach. Children of all ages were using the park and lots of shade to sit under and have lunch. Very clean with toilets and change rooms nearby. Shops are located at the water park to buy lunch, snacks and drinks. Definitely worth a visit.

Sat eating my lunch watching the children have a ball at this fabulous water playground. It was such a hot day and this was a great way for the children to have fun while keeping cool. A must for families visiting Hervey Bay.

We recently visited my mother-in-law who has retired to Hervey Bay. In the middle of summer with the temperatures at a steamy high humidity 35 degrees celsius, the Wet Side Water park was a great find. The water park is free for all and in a great location on the waterfront at Pialba. It features a slide and a tipping... More
