We walked the coastal path and enjoyed lovely views all the way. The walk gives you an opportunity to see interesting houses, some local history and very rugged coast line.

Great spot to stop and do a few walks with the family. Stroller friendly short walks. Maybe suitable also for wheelchairs. You can only view the obelisk. Beautiful coastline and great views.

It was interesting to look at. More interesting to look up and Read about the history and relevance to Robe. There was also a nice walking track to check out. Lovely place to take some photos.

Beautiful part of the coast line, with the Obelisk cordoned off for safety reasons. My husband, a Commercial Drone Pilot, flew his drone over the area while we watched the surf crash against the coast. Definitely a must see!

Definitely recommend visiting. Amazing views with unusual rock formations. There is also a small walk to a viewing platform of the Robe peninsula. Well worth seeing!
