It depends what you're after when you go to Whalers Way. If you want a scenic highway and cafes and hundreds of tourists - you've come to the wrong place! Whalers is for those who appreciate nature, want to watch the ocean rolling in, see...More

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.
