“My mum makes the best picnic lunches ever. After lunch we went stand-up paddle boarding, I only fell off once.”

Bongil picnic area, on the banks of Bonville creek is great spot to kick back and relax. This grassy clearing is surrounded by tall, pencil-straight blackbutt trees.

Enjoy a family picnic under the shelter or on the grass in the shade of the trees. You might be lucky to see a koala or swamp wallaby. After a tasty barbecue lunch, you can check out the North Bank walking track, or head to the pontoon for a spot of fishing or to explore the park by canoe or kayak.

If you’d like to admire the view of the Bonville creek from a distance, the viewing platform has a couple of seats and makes a peaceful place to sit.
