A DIY tour of the rugged coastline

Very overrated. $30 plus $10 for key. Lots and I mean lots of very rugged road for not many scenic views. Picnic spot just a joke, very dirty Better to do the National Park,or even better the National Park at Coffin, absolutely beautiful

A beautiful drive with many points of interest and great views of the rugged and spectacular coastline. Also some scenic walks to great locations which make for a great day out.

When I was a local, I would go here as a kid with my parents. I took my wife here on a holiday and it brought back all my childhood memories. Basically nothing has changed. The views are spectacular. The roads are dirt and a bit corrugated. The flies were everywhere. But the terrain is great. One of the great... More

There is plenty of advertisement about this place being somewhere to go to see the rugged coastline and where the old whalers were active. It also advertised having a BBQ area with seating. We paid $30 to get a pass to go on the land and a key to open the gates as well as a bad photocopy of a... More

Well worth the trip. Make sure you have a 4wd as the roads can be a bit rough. Follow the map and make sure to get out and enjoy the treks on foot. Be sure to have room on your camera!

Relaxing day and some exercise with the short walks to some amazing views our boys aged 10 and twins 8 loved the experience. Don't recommend using the BBQ facilities provided - take your own BBQ or packed lunch and allow a good 4-5 hours if doing all walks/stops

It has been 10 years since the last time I transversed this spectacular rugged piece of country. It was a cold wet day this time. As such there were huge waves pounding and the wind was fierce. Despite this, it did not diminish the enjoyment. The road is rough and there are warnings to stay away from the edge as... More

Glorious natural scenery that is wild and accessible. A fun couple of hours driving around the sites that offer spectacular views of the ocean, with white sandy beaches and dangerous rocks and bluffs. Seals were around, though at quite a distance. Please note, the road is unsealed so take care with your car if it isn't a SUV!
