This is a very popular stop. It is a short walk to the beach and then to the Boulders. There were a lot of other people there when we arrived and it took a while to be able to take photos without the other in them.

We stopped here after hearing about these boulders and found them very interesting. You have to walk down to the beach from the car park and a short way along the beach to see them. Its worth the time spent here. In the cafe there is an explanation of how they formed and where they came from. While in the cafe have a coffee and food. Both were very good and not all that expensive

This is a must-visit for the geologically interested, as it is a very unusual set of boulders and quite visually striking.

The entrance is by the side of a cafe and souvenir shop. there is a coin box asking for donation. We just drop some loose coins of 10cents that we had on us but we saw many people who just walked past it. So i guess its not a compulsory donation since no one stop them. We were lucky that it wasnt very high tide so we were able to access to the rocks which was awesome. Not too many people since we were pretty early when we left Oamaru. There's brushes and water hoses for you to wash your shoes after the walk. It can get quite muddy which comes in useful.

These rocks are amazing at low tide along the beach just south of Oamaru. Well maintained trail down to the water's edge from the parking lot. Another trail leads you up to an overlook of all the rocks and the beach area with a great explanation of these boulders. Such a classic example of Mother Nature at work! Be aware: they ask for a two dollar donation to go down to the beach to see the boulders up close. Cafe on premises and nice clean restrooms.
