The flat expanse at this picnic area is a great place for the kids to kick a ball or throw a Frisbee to work up an appetite. After a tasty picnic or barbecue lunch, relax on your picnic rug, take in some sunshine or set off on an exploration of the park – there’s heaps to do including the nearby Yeramba Lagoon loop track.
Fitzpatrick Park is just the place for a spot of family fishing – cast a line to try your hand at catching a luderick, mullet or mulloway. If you’d like to go on a boating or paddling adventure, you can launch your canoe or kayak from the nearby boat ramp.
