this wonderful park and gorgeous damn is a hidden diamond among the sunshine coast in all seasons, great for little kids as the center of the grounds is a flying fox, swings and other and a great space to run around and have safe fun.

The falls only flow after rain but in general nice for a quick dip and cooling off on a hot summers day. Lots of young people jumping off the 10m (guessing could be more) drop into the water hole. Rocky climb down to the swimming...More
