Amazing and intriging boulders on the beach. Chose your time to visit though as low tide is more spectacular. Can be too crowded for good photo opportunities though. Local cafe requests/suggests $2 dollar per person donation to access the boulders so if every visitor pays they must be taking a fortune.

Don’t let the numerous amounts of tourists put you off. This is a stunning spot to take photos, explore or just relax and people watch

Weird and wonderful place. We stopped at the museum in Duntroon a few days earlier and touched to the rattling rocks there, it was awesome to see these bigger ones. They really look like little moons that fell down on the beach. Or like fossilized giant eggs... we had our own car and I think that was a win.

So amazing what Mother Nature is capable of. Definitely a must see if you're popping past. We stopped in the car park and walked over to the beach and walked along beach to it. There is a souvenir shop/cafe up off the beach. Was very busy when we were there.

The boulders are interesting but not very large. I was expecting larger. It was a dull, damp day and there were still lots of people climbing on the boulders.
