When I am in town this is always a must for a nice walk to blow away the cobwebs. A great facility on the edge of the city.

Pugneys is a lovely place to visit with all the family. There is a lot to do from walking, taking bikes, playing in the play areas and beaches, watersports, picnicing or having a coffee or snack at the cafe.

Love taking my dogs out here! So much freedom for them to walk and my collie gets a good dip in the water. Great cycle path too.
