Great views and easy walk to most of the lookouts in this park. Easy parking and great "informal" monument erected for some poor souls lost at sea.

Nice place to walk out to the point for a 180 degree sea view. It's a short, easy hike on established trails. There are some side trails to get down to beaches. Whale spotting in season. Parking lot at the start of the trail.

Hi Helen, yes the roads are sealed all the way, as well as the entire car park. Most of the foot paths are paved as well and it is easy to get to all the interesting things. Please let me know if you have any further... More
