Parks & Nature

A favourite for rock fishing, or a moderate 30 minute bush walk during the ocassional non-swimming beach day. There's a little walking track that takes you past little fairy gardens the local kids have made, and then through a forest and to a point on the cliffs that looks like a strange Martian landscape - you can see all the way up to the Bay to the north, down to Rosedale in the south and almost out to NZ :). Well worth exploring!!!

Brilliant beach for dogs to play on, and at the right time of year you can actually see the whales migrating past here right from our deck!!! If McKenzies is windy then Pretty Point Bay is more often than not calm and vice versa.

One of the best places breakfast, brunch and lunch we've found anywhere in any city - and it's just 2 minutes drive away. Just brilliant food and great service. There's tables inside and a deck out the back overlooking Mosquito Bay.

We went kayaking, and its a great activity and way to explore something new with the kids. We came across all types of birds, fish and some huge, but "friendly" rays along the way. They also do all sorts of tours, bike hire and other experiences.

Also do home delivery which is very convenient if you'd rather swim on the beach than grocery shop!
