Water Platform

The water platform floats on fibre cement blocks and activates the experience of the nexus between the water and the cliffs.

A range of recreation and leisure opportunities are created. Adrenaline junkies can experience the thrill of jumping off the cliffs, the steps make the platform part of a scenic river walk experience, adults can swim laps in a fifty-metre pool and kids can paddle in a false bottom pool. Families can enjoy picnics and BBQs under the shelters and enjoy the serenity of the river. Boaters and paddlers can use the platform as the destination for a daytrip.
