An ice-cream shop has popped up at Macmasters Beach. It’s staffed by tiny people who serve coffee, ice-cream, fish ‘n’ chips and sand. You pay with pine needles.

There’s also a giant red soft-fall crab! Hang on… make that two crabs! Plus a set of swings for younger tots.

Plus, for “Ninja Warrior” fans there’s a play structure that’s sure to excite. We’ve seen many kids channeling their inner warrior on the raised balance beams, swinging bridge bars, rope climb and bouldering wall.

Looking for coffee? The Barefoot Cafe at the southern end of Macs Beach is open every day from 8am. Click here to read our review on this hidden gem.
