About this place
Spectacular limestone cliffs, after which the place is named, are a photographer's delight, as is the large surf that pounds the shore of this pristine beach.
The walk trails and lookouts provide spectacular views and a chance to witness the antics of migrating whales in winter and spring. Take your time and appreciate the fabulous coastal heathland featuring swamp paperbark and the red flowering gum.
From the parking area (200m return) there is a picnic shelter and accessible lookout platform. There is a fantastic boardwalk and stairs down to the beach where you can fish for salmon, feel the sand between your toes as you comb the beach for shells. Seabirds and other marine life are found here all year round.
Plan when to visit. Consider travelling with a personal location beacon (PLB). In the event you need to be rescued it could save your life!
This stretch of coast can be hazardous due to large, unpredictable waves and swells, slippery rocks and strong currents.
For your safety:
- Always pay attention to the ocean
- Keep well clear of the sea
- Avoid slippery rocks and loose surfaces
- Stay alert and supervise children at all times
- Don’t fish if it is too rough; know the weather forecast and tides before fishing. Always fish with someone else
