It is a nice place to take a walk and seeing around. Even better at night. Or you can take a boat to go around the river

A well formed walking track - clean - well maintained enough bridges so you can cross over and walk back - has a few cafes along the way to stop for a coffee or fruit juice

A lovely river cruise with a great tour guide. A nice relaxing way to spend 40 min. The water lizards are lovely. There are some great food and drink spots along the way.
