If you visit Campbelltown you must visit Davaar Island as it's been here a very long time,and well worth the walk across when the tide is out,but make sure you time the tides or you will be stuck there overnight.😣

This is only accessible during low tide. It's about a 45 minute walk through some rough terrain. Wear non slip shoes. Totally worth the trek.

This is accessible on foot at low tide. It's a nice (long) walk but sturdy boots are needed and the walk along the shore to the cave painting involves some careful footwork over boulders. The painting has seen better days but is historically interesting. Pay...More
