Take your time and drive round this magnificent body of water. On the land side there are potteries and galleries to visit and the headland is wild and beautiful.

A grand, glorious harbour made extra memorable by the superb Anzac Centre with details of the two convoys that gathered in King Georges Sound ready for the journey to Egypt at the start of WWI.
