A lovely walk through bush from the carpark to the start of the beach. The sand dune is huge and popular with boogie boarders. Short but challenging walk to the lookout but stunning views make it worthwhile.

Stop researching, stop Googling... just go! We had no idea what to expect with this natural wonder and were literally blown away. It is nature at it's finest! Take a small picnic at sunset and find a sheltered nook. PERFECT! and it's free!!!

We wandered through the forest into the sand dune...wow...it is quite spectacular. We trudged up and ran down. We walked across and back. We admired the views of the ocean. Great place for a panorama shot.

This was a great place to have a picnic lunch. We had fish and chips from the local fish shop (next to the laundrette) while watching para sailers practice from the other side. Worth the short walk down the bluff to the ocean views!

Amazing walk through the forest and a few steps and then you arrive at the platform where you can read about the sand dunes, take your footwear off and feel the beautiful sand on your feet while having the great views and amazing sand.
