Fraser Coast Mayor George Seymour said it was fantastic to see WetSide going from strength to strength and proving popular among local residents and visitors to the region.

“WetSide is a great place to keep cool and have fun with something for everyone, including waterslides, a water play arena, TotSide for under 5s play as well as a new Aqua Ninja course that is the first of its kind in Australia,” Cr Seymour said.

“It’s terrific to see almost 50,000 people have made the most of the refreshed facility since it reopened in October,” the Mayor continued.
