Wasn't aware of this spot, but maybe we do like this more than the 12 apostles. It's at least not so crowded. So we found it a most stop.

We hosted a group of visiting Rotarians from NY state and showed them our local sights - they were absolutely mind blown by the Bay of Islands - weather windiest we locals had experienced along there, sea extremely rough and views absolutely staggering. They had never seen nothing like it!

A beautiful set of coastal formations, Bay of Islands was dramatic on the day we visited due to high winds whipping up big waves. Highly recommended and worth the drive!
