Being from a coastal province of Canada, maybe I've seen too many rocky coastlines. I didn't think this was anything special. It was a bit of a drive to get out here and couldn't understand the Tripadvisor hype. I'm not saying it was a waste...More

How lovely it was to walk through the rock forest and watch the sea crashing in against the rocks. Just so very peaceful as well as magnificent.

Be prepared for the heat & the flies if you go in the Summer months and wear sturdy shoes. The petrified fortress is really interesting. A short walk from the car park on a barren rocky surface gets you to them and not far from...More

A nice little spot with lovely vistas including large waves, cliffs, and limestone formations. Easy to get to by car and not far to walk. The only drawback are the many persistent, extremely large march flies.The site is part of the great west coastal walk....More

We loved the walk through the petrified forest ( that actually never was a forest), amazing formations . The older route is now sealed off probably due to erosion but the board walk allows a good view and easy stroll.

Easy to access from the public car park. Take the left path for the petrified forest and the right for the blowholes. Walk is good exercise but pretty rough in places so unwise for chair access. Very spectacular and savage coastline vista. Much surf and...More

Worth a visit well signposted spectacular views of the ocean Only thing I’m not sure about is why the f—ck they would put (pictured) wind gatherers in this location is it just me or could a better location have been chosen

An easy walk to both the blow holes and Petrified forest. Excellent scenery, and almost feels like your in the desert. Just watch your step, as the path is rocky, and easy to trip.

It does make one think it is a moonscape. Quite interesting to visit - it's not actually a forest but a very unusual limestone formation. Well worth a visit and the walk to see it. Sadly it was not the best of days when we...More

Response from Richard O | Reviewed this property |
Yes, as far as I know. I have no recall of any sign forbidding animals. It's a rather out-of-the-way place, so i can't imagine much in the way of restrictions. There is an open car park and then a rough track along... More
