This is a lovely area and you are almost always sure to see whales in the season. There is a viewing platform and toilets and small car park.

A great little walk through this park leads to a quiet beach that few people know about. Plenty of sand, the odd rocks, and lots to see and do. Ideal picnic spot. The Encounter Bike way runs through the park as does the Cockle Train,...More
