  • It was in the word of mouth, but the fossil might not be seen well if it does not go at low tide. The time I arrived was at low tide, so I could see a lot of rocks rolling at the foot of the cliff and below the cliffs (i don't think i'll be able to go to the beach at the foot of the cliff if it's probably not low tide). Many of the fossils of shellfish were found in small scallops and two shellfish. It looked very interesting. There was a picnic space in the parking lot in front of the beach, and the surrounding area was full of mansions and natural scenery was well in a quiet place. The tidal chart is recommended to check in advance and then go, as you can search for time on the nearby coast on the Internet.

  • It was a lovely walk down to the beach with the dogs. Great little beach. Picnic table and bench great to bring your own lunch or coffee and enjoy the view  more »
  • Wonderful spot if you love fossils. I do and did love it! The geological history is awe-inspiring.
  • A great scenic lookout, close to the township with fantastic views both seawards and landwards.
