For your own safety, please don't feed the kangaroos or approach them as they are wild animals. Feeding them can lead to them becoming unhealthy and very aggressive. Many people have been injured by kangaroos at this site as a result.
Please note that there are no toilets at the picnic area. The nearest public toilets are located at Morisset Park on Macquarie Road, or on Dora Street in Morisset. Morisset Hospital facilities are not accessible to the public so please don't enter the hospital grounds.
