The region is also known for its delicious local produce, particularly when it comes to wine. If you don’t mind a bit of a day trip, there are a number of vineyards that you can visit (and sample a drop or two).

Many of these vineyards also have an onsite restaurant if you want to grab something to eat.

As well as being the location of a number of small fishing villages (including Boonooroo and Tuan), it’s also a designated dugong sanctuary. Turtles and dolphins are also frequently spotted in the area. It’s also a valuable roosting area for migratory trans-equatorial shorebirds (with almost 30,000 birds stopping here annually). Bring the kids down and see what you can spot!
