About this place
The park contains many rugged and spectacular headlands, but Quoin Head is especially popular with photographers because of its distinctive shape and the pretty bay and beach it overlooks.
The headland is shaped like a ‘quoin’ which was a wedge used to raise a ship’s cannon or to keep it from rolling on the deck.
Ospreys nest on these remote headlands and are seen here regularly, often sparring in the air with kestrels and Australian hobbies.
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!
