We decided to call in. The place was packed with tourists but we did manage to get a park with our caravan. A beautiful place and well worth a visit. Lots of snorkelers.

Coral only meters from the Shore, lovely spot for all, shadow for the kids with a drop off for the coral and sea life. We saw 40cm+ fish just after the drop off

We hired SUPs in the morning from the shack on the beach and spent the hour paddling up and down the bay. Very relaxing. In the afternoon we threw on the flippers and masks and went in search for "Ayres Rock", a coral formation located...More
