Enjoy the beautiful rock wallabies at this lovely bay in Arcadia. A large sheltered bay with a beautiful beach (quite shallow for most of the day). Abundant bird life here.

Take a stroll down here to see the rock wallabies, there are plenty around so you are almost guaranteed to see them, there are some lovely views over the bay from here and plenty of big rocks that can make some lovely photos
