Cafes, gelato stands and watersports shacks dot the waterfront, giving you plenty of options for adventure, from stand-up paddleboarding to skydiving. Feel like casting a line out? Head over to the jetty and fish for bream or grunter fish.

At the end of The Strand you’ll find Jezzine Barracks, a historic site for both the Australian military and Indigenous Australians. Enjoy the commissioned outdoor art, an ethnobotanical walkway and observation decks at Kissing Point Fort. Visit the 25-hectare Anderson Gardens to see the diverse collection tropical trees and palms and the World Cycad Collection.

The Museum of Tropical Queensland provides an array of simulated interactive experiences, from diving the Great Barrier Reef to exploring a rainforest and firing ship’s cannon.
