    Cabbage Tree Point

    What I love the most about Cabbage Tree Point is that it delivers a different experience every time we go. Depending on the weather, there are so many different things to do. While I usually love the nice sunny beach days spent here and on the playground, recent sunset visits exploring the mudflats and going for a walk were just as fun!! No matter the tide, come with your towel and a change of clothes when you visit and you'll have a ball.

    Hinze Dam

    While Hinze Dam is best known as the Gold Coast’s water supply, many are surprised when they visit and take in its stunning hinterland setting, with onsite View Café taking prime position to capture the breathtaking vistas. Add to this the state of the art information centre, dam wall walk, picnic grounds, pathways, fishing coves and mountain bike trails, and you’ve got yourself a great spot for locals and tourists.

    The Faerie Park, Merrimac

    Do you have a little one fascinated by fairies?? Hidden away in the suburbia of Merrimac, lies a little playground that encourages imaginative play in children of all ages. The Faerie Park on first glance doesn’t look as enticing as some of the newer playgrounds with all their fancy play equipment, but take a moment to look a little closer and see what you can find… perhaps a troll, a goblin or even a faerie!
