2hours 1km walk

From Crofton Drive, walk past the playground towards the beach. Cross the cycling path and either walk down the Boardwalk or take the sandy trail to the beach, rockpools and snorkelling area.

You could be here for hours swimming, snorkelling, playing in the sand and searching rockpools.

To see the rockpools go at low tide and wear closed shoes as rocks can be sharp! Beware of the Blue-ringed octopus, so don’t put hands into rockpools!
