Offering an awesome location to relax and have fun
For a place named Picnic Point you'd be hoping for the perfect spot to set yourself up on a lovely weekend. Thankfully, the Maroochydore park, by the Maroochy River, lives up to the name. Picnic Point is a fantastic stretch of public park, shaded by trees and populated with tables, chairs and plenty of shade to make any picnic a success.
Picnic Point is a beautiful place to go. You'll have your pick of spots to choose from along this gorgeous stretch of land. No tables available? No worries! Grab a spot under the tree instead. No matter how busy it gets here there always seems to be room for everyone. I went by on a weekend recently and no one seemed to be intruding on anyone else's space.
Picnic Point Park is a great place for picnics. Shocking, right?
For an actual picnic you couldn't pick a better spot. Besides those lovely views you also have access to electric barbecues, tables (some undercover) and toilets. It's great for the entire family or just a couple looking for some nice time together.
Being on the river this is also a great place to unload the kayaks and stand up paddleboards or even just a dip in the cool water. It's also a great fishing spot and those with boats will make good use of the boat ramp down the end of the esplanade. Kids looking for a playground will find some luck just down the esplanade at Adolph Blanck Park, it's basically opposite the road from the beginning of Picnic Point Park.
