There is a great picnic spot at the South end of Maroubra. You can approach it 2 ways : 1. via Fitzgerald Ave and go nearly to the big Maroubra parking area, go round the roundabout and then just turn into the road that leads to the  park- or 2 . via Marine Parade ,go right to the end of Marine Parade south end - go round the roundabout and into the park: There is a sign on the road into the park which says South Maroubra Surf Club There is free parking in there , picnic tables, free barbeques , lots of grassed areas , and then can just walk over to the beach on walkways . Some of the tables are close to the parking areas so good for easy access. Lots of birds here and not very many people go here in the off- summer months .
