Take the boardwalk path to see the rock formations. There are also lots of nesting boxes. If you have a good eye, you may spot some penguins. This place is good for a short roadside rest.

We went early and found the walk around brilliant. It opens at 10am so we got there at 9.30. Walking along we could see abundant wildlife as my pics will show. Great views.
