Sorry to say I found the town and waterfront particularly uninspiring but coming to this viewpoint made the whole journey worthwhile., Informative noticeboards helped to understand the whaling legacy

On this site is an information board that must be visited. Sea creators are not understood by us as humans . It is very educational.

We took a drive to the Heads, and the view here of this part of the coastline is a must for all visitors and "photoholics". A beautiful short walk, and stunning place to pop the question with such views.

An easy pull on the road to Brenton On Sea that offers great views from above the lagoon. There is a bench where you can just sit and soak up the view or take photographs of the whole Kynsna area.

I class this as a must visit. The views are lovely. It is on a roadside stop with parking. However on the one side there is sadness to see the damage caused by the recent fires.

An easy by the side of the road stop to admire the view. Sadly, we saw much of the recent devastation caused by the June 2017 forest fires. A food/drink van was parked nearby, but we didnt try it out.

A roadside spot to stop and take in the awesome view. There was a coffee truck parked there at the time we stopped but it was missing when we passed next day.
