Ready to take a break from the road and need a good picnic area? Broadwater Beach picnic area couldn’t feel further from the highway despite being only a short diversion. Perhaps you’re a local or staying in the area for a while and have time to relax over a leisurely picnic lunch before exploring the park or taking advantage of the nearby beach and go swimming, surfing or fishing.
Plants found around the picnic area are mainly coastal banksia, tuckeroo (also called carrotwood and beach tamarind), pandanus, heath and midgen berry. Bring your binoculars for birdwatching, as the birdlife around the picnic area is abundant, especially in spring when the wildflowers are blooming brightly.
Midgen berry is traditional bushfood; the sweet dotted berry melts in your mouth and has a gingery flavour. Something to add to your picnic. After lunch why not take in the views from the nearby Broadwater inland lookout.
