Like the sound of a picnic by the water’s edge? Pack up the family and head to Bents Basin Road picnic area for the day.

Get the barbecue going and relax at a picnic table while absorbing the water views and cooking up your lunch. Bring your kayak along to go for a paddle. There’s also good fishing and swimming in the basin on a hot summer’s day is a great way to cool off.

See if there’s enough wind to get a kite up or set off on the Caleys lookout track, which begins from the back of the picnic area, or cross the bridge to explore the park’s southern section.
