Got in at 6.15pm as they were locking the gates but they let us in! Designated overnight spots were full but we couldn’t get out again so stayed the night in a normal car park and didn’t get into trouble. Nice clean toilets open all night. Gorgeous sunrise over the lake in the morning, incredible view.

Super coin ! Douche et toilettes, vue sur l'eau et barbecue ! On peut même se baigner, c'est parfait, par contre attention à l'accès, on peut le louper facilement !

Filled up be 4pm on a long weekend. We were lucky as we arrived by 1pm. Very busy during the day as it is so shallow so lots of families, but quiets right down at night as the gate gets locked at 9pm. Great for a free spot close to the city. Very nice and new flush toilets, drinking water and cold shower station. Lots of picnic tables around. They even have bins for recycling different things (glass, paper, plastic).

Parking right by the beach. Two out of three places were busy. The park is below the residential area and the road down is somewhat difficult to find in the dark. We were not disturbed by any trains or roads above.

Beautiful spot with water views over Welcome Bay. Can be tricky to find. Look for a sign on the left "Beach Access". If you end up at a playing field car park you have gone about 200m too far. Room for 3 vans. Toilets (locked at night) BBQs, benches and bins. Very quiet and out of the way and we had the park to ourselves on a Saturday night!! Would definitely stay again.

Very nice spot! Surounded bij water. It is located on a mini peninsula in a park in a suburb. There are 3 spots (if everybody parks normaly in the lots).
Toilet is clean and stays open during nighttime. Bring your torch, because there is no light in the toilets. Gate of the park closes at 9pm during summer and opens at 7am.
