At the Eastern end of Somers is the beginning of Western Park Beach which stretches all the way to Sandy Point along parklands.
Nice conveniences in the area include Somers General Store where you can get a scrumptious breaky after a walk along the beach; and a 7 min drive to Balnarring takes you to shops & restaurants including Orita’s Japanese, & Fontalina Italian cuisine.

Within the wetlands is a two-storied wooden observation building called Minsmere Hide nearby the Lagoon – perfect for bird lovers to nestle in and watch these beautiful animals and take in the surrounds.
