It's a great family safe spot. The Salmon Holes is a great spot for the family also. Stay away from the rocks mate. It's not worth it. King River itself provides for very good fishing also. Plenty of Black Bream around.

My old stomping grounds.

My old stomping grounds.  From the King river palms (Chester pass rd) head down river till you get to the Oyster harbour. The Lower King Bridge is not a bad spot for young kids. If you continue east (Towards Kalgan river or as I know it Nannarup rd)you'll come to a turnoff which will take you out to Ledge Point & Gull Rock (no 4WD access to Ledge Point beach) can fish rocks or beach very short walk, you can get onto beach at Gull Rock turn off to the left before you hit the actual headland. Travel about half way down the beach and there is a hole on the inside of the reef I've done quite well out of it over the years.

If you continue down Nannarup rd you'll come to Nannarup beach the easiest access to a beach I've ever known, fairly safe 4WD to the left I'm not sure if you're allowed to go right in a car, but there is a very nice swim spot very portected for a days outing.

Back into town you could head to Emu Point where Oyster Harbour empties into the King George Sound Excellent spot to wet a line and the kids to run amuck.

Besides these couple of spots just follow the coast in either directions and you'll find a multitude of locations to fish or spend a day R&R.

Rock fishing is possible at a lot of locations just be safe not not become a casualty.

Good Luck and enjoy the Great South Coast.
