Wappa Falls and Dam
A short drive off of the Bruce Highway at Yandina 100 kms north of Brisbane is a relaxing swimming hole. The falls are in two separate sections. The one on the left has a crater at the top where you can relax in before you, if game enough, jump off . The children can really have some fun here. Just a 300 metres up the road you come to the Wappa Dam. Its a good place to have a picnic and enjoy the serenity of the dam and the flora and fauna. There was a family of Kookaburras that kept us amused as we had our lunch. They swooped down from the tree above our table and my daughter thought it strange how they kept landing on the epitaph. It was a great day, a swim at the falls followed by lunch at the dam.

A good weekend away camping at Boreen Point. Do some sailing ,kite surfing,kayaking or just a swim and a fish. Its a beautiful spot for some photogrphy with some lovely trees on the bank of Lake Cootharaba and a great background view.The Appollona Hotel is a lovely historic hotel to have something to drink or eat.
The sandbank at the lake goes out along way from the shore line and you can walk out to the centre of it no worries.It is a great safe place for children.

Boating Lake Currimundi
Currimundi Lake, Kathleen McArthur National Park is a natural gem which has survived despite its proximity to Sunshine Coast developments. A pocket of the wallum heath which once covered much of coastal southern Queensland thrives on Lake Currimundi's northern shore. This type of coastal heathland is rich in plant species, many of which attract birds and insects seeking food and shelter. Wander down the track from
Coongarra Esplanade through the park to the beach.

Fishing Lake Currimundi
This is a beautiful spot for a family day out. You can either swim in the lake or surf and sunbake on the beach,fish, canoeing, or go for a walk through the National Park. It truly is a hidden gem this place.
The photos I took are of the lake around sunset while families were having a great day out. I really like the photo of the two children fishing.You can just see the surf in the background.A walk through the
National Park which travels all the way along the Mooloolah River is something worth doing.
