Booti Booti National Park offers numerous places to relax in front of the ocean. Sailing Club picnic area faces away from the ocean, sitting on the shore of scenic Wallis Lake instead. The lakeside beach is just as sandy, the water just as refreshing, but safe shallow swimming and shady paperbark trees make this a terrific alternative for families and holiday-makers alike.
Find an ideal picnic spot and settle down with binoculars for a bit of birdwatching: osprey and sea eagles are often in the area. Break out the swimmers, or bring your kayak for a leisurely afternoon paddle among the sail boats.
Sailing Club picnic area can get busy in summer, but nearby picnic alternatives like Santa Barbara and Elizabeth Beach mean there’s enough room for everyone.
