Here are our top 7 suggestions for some serious fun!

1. Have a whale of a time at the newly opened Whale Park in Banya! If you haven’t visited yet, it’s time to get down and check it out. Located on the corner of Lady Elliot Street and Great Keppel Way, the park features a whale-themed playground, basketball half-court, a cycle loop and plenty of green space for the kids to run around or enjoy a picnic.

2. Soar to new heights at Boulder Heads Indoor Rock Climbing. Use your balance, technique and strength to scale the rock walls. It sounds scary, but trust us, it’s heaps of fun for both adults and kids, and once you’ve tried it, you’ll be hooked!

3. Treat the kids to a round of babycinos or milkshakes at Mummy’s Café. And the best part is, they’re dog friendly too, offering puppycino’s and doggy treats to keep the furry family members happy too!

4. Check out the amazing hand painted mural artwork from local, talented artist Hannah Poida at the Frog Park located in Baringa. This vibrant street art features one of Aura’s resident frog species, the rare Wallum Sedge Frog, transforming a boring electricity box to give it a life of its own!
