A wonderful park to visit. We stayed the whole morning here before we went for lunch. Beach, hill, walking tracks, views, birds and animals, trees and plants. BBQ facility ready to be used. Toilets and shower available too. Parking is not a problem.

We didn’t know what to expect when we drove in to Shakespear Regional Park but were delighted with what we found. A nice drive, lovely beaches, a lookout & great walking tracks! We filled a couple of hours very nicely!

A beautiful park full of families on a Sunday. Plenty of space to chill out and admire the azure waters.
