Short distance from Kalbarri, and a few minutes walk from the carpark. Wheelchair and pushchair friendly. So interesting to see the way the rock formation has decided the coastline here. Great views along the coast and out to sea.

Visited here early in the day and saw a pod of dolphins. We also saw whales further out to sea. Really beautiful with the morning light on the cliffs.

The Shellhouse Grandstand is a very interesting naturally eroded cliff face and worth a visit for the views. In whale season you may even sight whales from the cliff tops.
