The park had a variety of features that it was hard to get bored even when you’re alone. The ANZAC Park had a solitary statue of a soldier representing those who enlisted during the Great War of 1914 to 1919. Other features: a lagoon, a play area, The Spine, The Rockpools, a Visitor’s Centre, the Southport Pier, Urban Wetland, a Mangrove Walk and the Pandanus Point.
I was mesmerized by a sunny day cloaked under a blue, almost cloudless sky. But something enchanted me more. I sat by the foreshore facing west just gazing at a crane sweeping down the sky and into the Broadwater, scooping what my eyes couldn't see. The mechanics of nature was as appealing as any other man-made pleasures.

|Southport Spit has its share of high rise. The Spit divides the salty Broadwater from the Pacific.|
