Stayed there over the weekend and was disgusted by the ammount of people shitting in the bush and even on the walking path , use a shovel if your desperate and bury it or better yet there's a public toilet 1km up the road near the Woolshed Can see why places like this get shutdown

To the inconsiderate grubs who have been camping in this area recently, you guys really spoil it for everyone else campers and locals.There is soiled toilet paper everywhere even around a private shack not far from the reserve and faeces on the narrow path around the cliff face. People are camping everywhere & dumping their rubbish on the side of the road - obviously you have children by the toy wrappers what are you teaching these future campers!!! Photos to back up.



Unreal! Stayed in our Landcruiser with a RTT and there was plenty enough room. The other people there were in a big RV and managed to fit in well as well. Might be a bit hard with a caravan and will definitely fill up quick in the busier months. The spot itself is magical with a gorgeous view out to the bay, we saw dolphins, starfish and many birds! Highly recommend. Also there's good Optus reception and we were very sheltered from the wind.
