The walk down to Rocky Point was through beautiful wooded areas, including stands of tall tree ferns. We spotted many parrots and sea birds and saw several muttonbird holes. The coastal views from the point were clear and spectacular. Don't miss the amazing fig trees back out on the road.

The road at the Reserve is lined with amazing Morton Bay Figs creating a lovely "avenue". My 89 year old mother and I decided not to go all the way to Rocky Point (safety reasons!) but enjoyed a beautiful slow walk through the reserve enjoying the birds, ferns, and the flat walk. We were the only ones there at the... More

Good place to see White Terns nesting in the trees and the White Capped Noddy. Walk down to the cliff top and see Red-tailed Tropicbirds souring over the cliffs.

A lovely walk through unspoilt forest to Rocky Point. Shady picnic tables available in the forest for a warm days picnic lunch.

The 100 acre Reserve has shady walks leading to Rocky Point where stunning cliff top views can be had of the Island and the Ocean. Some care needs to be taken closer to the end of the walk at the cliff edge.

Well worth the walk to get to the coast, this is yet another great spot to take your camera, different varieties of sea-bird inhabit this area . The walk is easy, even for those of us getting on in years.

Not the first (or second) place I would visit on the island but if you have time to spare and want some exercise, this is a good place to get it. Worth it for the views and photos when you get to Rocky Point. I wouldn't do it if it had just rained (like most places on the island, things... More

At the far end of this reserve you come to Rocky point to one of those memorable views. You are right out on the edge with the water below. We had Norfolk Turns nesting in April on the cliff and they would fly in to check on their nest. Wow, we were so close we could see their eyes. they... More

We had a rare afternoon of sunshine when we decided to go for a walk here out to Rocky Point. The paths among the trees are fairly easy to follow, but in some places where there is an incline it gets quite slippery, as it is just a bare earth track. In other parts they have put in boardwalk. There... More
