The Pontoons are encircled by safety nets which exclude potentially hazardous sea creatures (stingrays, the odd errant shore-seeking shark). The entire structure floats on the water's surface. Swimmers should remember that the depth of water will vary with the tides.
Wateroo enjoys a prime location, in front of Cafe Mia, near the jetty, near Mac's Waterfront Villas, on the edge of the blue Wallaroo Bay. Views across the bay to North Beach. Wallaroo Bay is popular with sailors and kayakers, dolphins and fish.
