We did this a couple if times, First in the morning and then at night. The kids took scooters and it got a little rough in parts to ride but that was still okay.

We managed to walk through to the end n back, took us about 45 to 60 mins. We loved the view, especially around sunset. Definitely recommend to come here if you are nearby.

It was a bit breezy on this occasion, but usually walking to the end of the break walk and back is invigorating and pleasant. There’s a car park at the starting point.

Provides a great walk along the Harrington coastline. Haven’t gone fishing but it looks well visited by locals. Funny to watch all the pelicans beg!!!

Great place for a nice easy walk or bike ride to enjoy the ocean views of Harrington. Good place for fishing from the breakwall.

On the day I visited the ocean was furious on one side and on the other calm! I didn't finish the whole walk because the waves were crashing over with quite some force, and I didn't want to get my camera wet. I was amazed...More

A nice place to stop for a short break - or longer stay. If you like fishing it’s even better. Well worth a visit.

A must do when visiting. Lots of bird life and fish. Many keen fishermen trying their luck but it seemed the pelicans and divers were having more success. It’s a good long walk along the Manning River.

There are different Rocks painted out of memory for fishermen who have passed. If you do, please choose an empty rock as two there are in memory of my Pop who fished there for 70 years and loved Harrington.
