Hillarys Marina / Sorrento Quay is a hub of eating and entertainment activities in the northern suburbs, and there is a great playground on the beach. The playground is right on the beach, in front of the Great Escape fun park. It is not huge, but has steel frame play equipment and a few extra bits such as springy boat the kids can climb in and out of. The play area is covered by a shade tent, and there is lots of sand and grass nearby for parents to sit on and watch the play. It is not far from the water's edge, and not fenced so you need to keep an eye on kids who are likely to wander. A bit further around, away from the restaurant area there is a new bigger grassed area with some shelters that is good for picnics.
There is so much coffee that you won't be able to choose. The closest comes from the cafe that is part of the Great Escape park, the Beach Club Cafe and it is literally right opposite the playground. Around the bay in the restaurant/boardwalk area there are lots of places to get takeaway coffee, including a Dome and a Gloria Jean's.
The toilets are also nearby, in the toilets/change room block for the beach.
