Holiday Snaps - Easter Break at Burrum Heads, Queensland

We've just returned from Burrum Heads, 30 minutes north of Hervey Bay, Queensland, our favourite Easter holiday desination to take the kids and kick back and relax for a week. For the last 3 years, we have been taking our families camping at the Burrum Heads Beachfront Caravan Park which is close to everything, the water, the shops, etc so we don't have to get the car out all week.

As an added bonus to all the water and fishing activities, the annual Burrum Heads Amateur Competition is on at this time each year. Our 8 kids (3 families) always register in the competition and participate in all the fun activities put on including the opportunity to win great prizes like rods, reels and tackle boxes.
The kids were all mad keen little fisher people, here is a photo of Dave and Hunter concentrating on catching the "big one". Many fish were caught (probably our best year ever for fishing) including a 43cm spotted rock cod - yum!!
Another wonderful thing about Burrum Heads is that there is a lovely long shaded walkway right along the river which the kids can ride their bikes and Ripstiks along quite safely. Jesse and Brooke finally mastered the Ripstik, a "must do" this school holidays.

One of my favourite times of the day was to sit out by the water in the early evening with a glass of wine and good friends and watch the beautiful and usually spectacular sunsets. Can't wait for next year...............
