What a fabulous walking path at anytime of day. Love reading the messages on the lovely colourful rocks. Some of them are so tastefully and professionally done. Great watching the boats come in over the bar.

Went each night after dinner. Great to people watch and to check out all the art. Plenty of Pokemon action for those interested

Interesting and creative views of these colourful rocks and often amusing messages and images. Easy walking from around the waters edge from surf beach to estuary

Like a cemetery mixed with graffiti a nice walk on a quiet day, good for kids and family. Avoid at night as drunks are fighting and you are not safe.

Creative and not so creative artwork along the heavily rocked breakwater provides relief either at the end or start of a coastal walk.

No Eimee, not at all-it's free to go on to and stay as long as you want or amble along at your leisure and read all the painted rocks.
