Come take a leisurely stroll on Southampton's historic boardwalk, soak in the sunrays, mystical panoramic views, world-class sunsets. The beach has many children's swings and benches strategically place along the boardwalk; a perfect spot for young and old to enjoy the scenic view offered by the nearby Chantry Island. The community has taken great strives to the preservation of the rare dune grass. This has helped the area serve as part of the migration route of Appellation and Songbird's. Step back in history, a short boat trip to Chantry Island explore the Imperial Lighthouse and Lighthouse keepers home.
Sunday evenings walk a short distance to Fairy Lake where every Sunday night at the bandshell hosts a variety of band concerts. Interested in Aboriginal history, plan to attend a ceremonial dinner and stories of the Native peoples.
