Had a great time watching the pelicans being fed at 3.30pm. It's so relaxing and the pelicans are so graceful despite their large size. The talk whilst being fed was very informative.

There is plenty to do from walking along the lake foreshore, going to the pictures, playing the games in the arcade, wandering around the shops or relaxing in the park.

Lovely place to visit on the weekends, very quiet during the week, kids would love it especially in the warmer months, lots of water games and attractions for the children.
