Great spot. Pretty quiet even though right on the road. Access to breach. No view but great sound of waves. Public toilets, outside showers, bbq, shelter, benches.

What a great spot, we first drove to Dotterel, but that was full. Very clean toilets, good shower and grass field with bench. The only minus was that the bbq didn’t worked.

Nice camping spot for self contained vans. Two toilets open 24h, cold outdoor shower, bbg area and benches. Access to the beach. We would come again!

Very nice place, with a shower, drink water, BBQ. Only 5 or 6 parking spaces but during the night, one ranger told us we can stay on the parking space for disabled person. It can be a bit windy. But the view is amazing and it’s peaceful and quiet even if it’s along the road.

New Toilet block in well kept order. Great beach, cold shower. 7 spots for only self contained vehicles. The local board also checks vehicles to make sure they are compliant otherwise $200 fine. Have gas cooking facilities and a picnic bench to set it off. Note the self contained carparks on the end are at an angle so careful when using your indoor shower.
