We visited the rocky cape national park via the western entrance, close to Hellyer. It was only a short drive in alongside towering and impressive button grass and dolomite outcrops, which we saw hand gliders making use of and harnessing the moderate coastal breeze. We only had an outdated travel guidebook with us to show he way to the aboriginal artefacts, and the road in was signposted poorly in directing us to these, and we accidentally drove through a small beach shack residential area which was completely the wrong turnoff from the fork in the road.
Once we found the right place to park our car, there was only a short walk to the ancient aboriginal middens - 10 mins at the most
From the car park. Spectacular views across the national park on the short walk to the artefacts, notably the stunning red lichen on the rocks that dotted the coastline. Once at the caves with the artefacts there were some great signage explaining the area and the history. Lots of bird life around the area, an interesting stop off if you are driving along the coast road to Stanley, as long as you already have a parks pass as we couldn't see a visitors centre there.
