Make sure to check out the cave. This park has everything for everyone
It’s a beautiful place here. Nothing really speaks for the over water sunset with gorgeous horizons at different depths and height. Would you not want to get away to let the sun set clear your eye balls for sensory overload for just one evening and take this in? City slickers get slammed by this.. if you live in the city and find certain aspects of life beautiful, if this doesn’t do anything for you, you simply must be dead inside… I had to stop and check this out. We never made it to our destination point because my wife and I saw this, she had no trouble coming back another time to see this site! We planned an alternate Day and time to re attempt our original destination.. Little man loved this too. He definitely wants to come back here next time we can, we’re from the city so the most we get is Petrie island which falls heavily in comparison to this. We certainly don’t get sun sets like these either.
