Tomaree Head Shoal Bay

National Parks are to be commended for providing a quality track which enable so many visitors to enjoy the views from the highest lookout overlooking the ocean.
The 360 degree views are spectacular and the historical nature of the headland is well documented and displayed.

The beach is clean for the most part and has a few walking trails behind it that lead out to secluded residential streets (if you don't want to park in the main carpark).
Love the big car park with no time restriction or ticketing.
