The best thing about this is it's free, which is hard to come by these days! Would be good for little kids because of the splash zone. It has one water slide which the line wasn't too long! Nice spot to cool down!

We went with our 5yo twins and they had a ball! They swam in the pool and also played in the playground. All free of charge, very clean pool and facilities. Highly recommended for anyone who wants to cool down and relax by the river.

Great to play under the bucket and point and shooter water canons. Also handy for a deeper dip and the waterfall offers a refreshing natural wonder

Good place to go when its too hot to do anything else. Enough shade to keep out of the sun and then cool off in the water.

Great spot to cool down in Mackay. Took our 15 month old son to the waterpark every day we were in Mackay. He had a great time around the big bucket, slides, sprayers etc. Great shallow areas on the splash pans, good grass to set up your picnic blankets. Cafes nearby. Best of all it's completely free.

This facility is magnificent. There is a smaller water playground area for the younger ones which the children just run themselves to near exhaustion as its so entertaining for them. Then there is the lower pool which has a big slide into it. Then there is an upper pool which is a gr8 pool for the bigger kids. The amenities... More
