Pier
“This is a lovely spot because there are so many things to do. Take the little train out along the jetty to the underwater observatory. Great fun for all of the family. For the more energetic, take a brisk walk or run along the foreshore and then a swim in the ocean to cool down. Enjoy fish or chips or a formal dinner, there are several venues to choose from. Check out the tourist information centre for other things to do locally or slightly further afield.”
