activities

whether you need to fill an hour, a day or a week we've got plenty of family friendly activities

Indoors and outdoors there are options for small and big groups.  

Hire a boat; explore trails and tracks, go swimming, snorkelling, surfing, diving, paddling, ride your bike off road or on our bike paths, discover one of our playgrounds, lose a day at a fun park, visit the museum or library, play aqua golf, go bowling; the list goes on and on.

If a nature experience is a high priority, Great Lake’s natural beauty will impress. Explore wild coastal landscapes with their long stretches of beach, rugged headlands and mysterious caves. Endless deep green forests and spectacular vista's are scenic highlights that make great family photos.

The only limit is your imagination so give us your list and we will tick it off.
