Easy access with accessible walk trails even for those in wheel chairs. The windmills are massive couldn't stop looking up at them the sound they make is soothing. The views from there is amazing. Well worth travelling to.

Who knew that a row of wind turbines could be so lovely. Not me, it is well worth the visit, the steps down to the beach to just sit for a while and watch the waves til in. This was a very relaxing and energising...More

A very enjoyable afternoon spent at the wind farm. A large free carpark, toilet facilities, information boards and three walks around the site with spectactular views. Excellent. Not to be missed.

They have done a wonderful path along the cliffs and put in viewing platforms along with interesting facts about the wind farm.

It is very well developed site, free parking and free access to the site. Different look out points located at different elevations gives us the most specacular views to the ocean and amazing wind farm. Panaromic photo shoot is the best, you will feel like...More

It's per car National park fees I think it's about $12 a day, if you're looking to visit a few National parks over several days you can get Park passes from visitor centres or tourist centres
