Families gather as The Collective officially launches | PHOTOS

The Collective at Berry Cool Estate, Coolangatta officially launched at a special family-friendly open day on Saturday.

The large crowd gathered on the lawn to soak up the sun, while kids enjoyed the jumping castle, got their faces painted and explored the nursery.

Staff at The Singing Dog Vegetarian Cafe were kept busy with a steady stream of hungry visitors, who enjoyed a bite to eat after perusing the shops.
