Took the 30km drive from Lincoln to see this place. Its ok but nothing spectacular. Dirt road to get there, nice beach on arrival but that's about it. Plenty of other places to visit before going here.

You can get the pass key at the little kiosk thing at the gate. However, th permit needs to be collected from the tourist info centre. If they don't have any, they will be able to advise where to get them from.
