St Leonards - still, sweet and soothing
Picturesque and peaceful, St Leonards is perfect for family holidaymakers, yachties and boaties.
It's Aussie BBQ time over at Harvey Park! Grill those fish fillets caught on Far Arm Pier at tide's turn! Enjoy the 60s retro of the St Leonards Hotel, featured in the classic ABC series Sea Change. Sit back in the front bar with a beautiful, biting cold beer. And who could forget the superlative seafood platters brimming with blue swimmers, Moreton Bay bugs, mussels and more, at the town's Tides Restaurant on Murradoc Street?
Eco-tourists will adore the Edward Point Nature Reserve on the spit. There's an abundance of bird-life; fairy tern, royal spoonbill and red-necked stints. An ornithologist's paradise; spy flitting feathered friends in the coastal Tea-tree and Sea-berry saltbush. A native garden of earthly delight! Keep strolling towards the shimmering coastal grassland at the edges of the salt marsh where the orange-bellied parrot resides.
If you want to unwind...spread the towel, stretch back supine and begin that book...bayside at St Leonards.
