We walked around the beach over rocks to visit this bay inlet. It wasn't the season for the nursery to be used by the reff sharks. The walk was a bit of a scramble in places. There were a few fish jumping. The small flies...More

It was quite a walk along the beach and over rocks so be careful what shoes you wear to walk in. Also, it was quite windy when we walked it and didn't therefore see a thing. Be careful if you go at sunset as you...More

This place is a good place to bring kids and family. If you talk to the volunteers in the visitor centre, they can talk to you about the sharks!

No reef sharks today. It's a long walk from main beach. Look for the sand dune without any plant life. There is an information board at the base of the sand dunes to indicate your there. Lots of stingrays to see.

A good morning walk along the beach to see the shark nursery. Small shark close to the shore as well as other easy to spot sea life like purple spotted stingrays, various fish and birds
