Summer days at Cockle Bay Wharf
The sun’s out and Cockle Bay Wharf is calling, we’ve got perfect Summer days aplenty.

Whether you like to party, spend time with the fam or just kick back solo, we’ll help you to make a splash this Summer. So get off the couch and trade your cooling system for the harbour breeze at Cockle Bay Wharf. What are you waiting for?

Family fun

Can’t face another playground, ball pit or indoor jungle gym? We’ve got just the thing. Spend the school holidays at Cockle Bay Wharf and you’ll discover that you don’t have to miss out on a good time just because the kids are having one. Visit in January and revisit your youth as you splash on Cockle Bay in a family sized pedal boat.

There’s nothing like 30 minutes of pedalling to work up an appetite, luckily you take your pick of family-friendly restaurants and they’re all a few steps from the Cockle Bay Wharf Pedal Boat dock.

Cheers to the weekend

If you’re more interested in partying than peddling, you can take your pick of places to celebrate the long days of Summer. From Aperol Spritz Sunset Sessions at Hunter & Barrel to courtyard sessions at Pontoon Bar, live music at Tokio Hotel or Sunday rooftop dance parties at Café Del Mar.

Our advice? Don’t plan to visit just one. With the day stretching ahead of you and the sounds of revelry surrounding you, exploring the wharf will make your day.

Dine the days away

Whether it’s breakfast, brunch, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner; we’ve got a feast for every time of day.
