See my other review on Nobbys Beach. A fabulous space to walk and take, even take your dog for a swim at the dog beach Horseshoe beach, on the harbour side of Nobbys Beach. Popular rain, hail or shine.

A nice place to go for a walk or a run, plenty of good views of either the ocean side or the harbour side. Friendly local fisherman happy to have a chat and we spotted some dolphins in the harbour.

Nobbys Head and Breakwall seemed to be the place for surfers to catch their next wave. I went in June which is wintertime and saw many surfers at this location riding the waves - beautiful!

Walkout on the breakwater thinking that the light house would be open which it wasn’t. My children and relatives were disappointed.
