between Binalong Bay and The Gardens, Bay of Fires

Have about an hour at Bay of Fires on our way to Bicheno. Which is the best spot to stop and admire the lichen-covered boulders and the beautiful beach?

As I'm driving a rental car, will be travelling along sealed roads only.

Thanks in advance.

If you drive north from St Helens towards The Gardens, you'll have plenty of opportunities to admire the lichen-covered boulders and beautiful beaches. The road is sealed. You don't need to drive all the way and an hour will suffice.

Go all the way to The Gardens (it's a little "village" of holiday "shacks") and have a walk around the rocks on the headland there. There are plenty of parking areas just off the roadside behind the beach all the way along the road.
