This is a really nice place to get away for a night or two and have a BBQ with friends or family. The surrounding nature is very peaceful and the rock wallabies are a highlight.

We came out from Trinity Beach accommodation to spend the day and are so glad we did. Feeding the wallabies was magical, and we did the longer walk out to Whale Rock. Found that quite challenging in parts, but finished it and really enjoyed it....More
