trail wasn't marked all that well. You will need walking shoes too. It is perhaps a bit far to take small children.

Walking trails are great down to the whale observation point. But, beware!!! Take plenty of fly repellent. Fly attack!!

We did the whale lookout trail. Beautiful blue ocean from end to end. It was really relaxing watching the waves take seemingly forever to sweep across the blue sea. If only the whales were still around.

Unfortunately our planned boat whale watching in October was cancelled because of gales. We did have a good walk here, saw flowers and birds and several very active whales with young ones close to the shore.

The walking tracks near the lighthouse are actually really good for trial runs. Beautiful views and well marked tracks. Nice location.

Lovely area, very nice walking tracks. The views over the ocean are stunning, in October we also saw loads of humoback whales from the shore. Great place to go, a must if you are in the region.

We chose easy trail as we have 2 young kids. Pretty easy but certain parts are not well paved so struggled with a stroller. During whales migration, it’s a great place to spot them if you choose the trail which they can be easily spotted.
