We stopped at Pickering point and walked to Thunder Point and then back to Merri Island. The rock formations are great and there is a place you can access the beach from. You can also look across to Middle Island and see the birds roosting.

Close to town but feels like it's a long way away. Nice quiet place to go for a walk whilst enjoying coastal views.

Happen to be there on a cold but sunny day, enjoyed the walk immensely. Stunning coastline and able to explore the little rock pools as the tide was out. Easy walk and well marked.

Loved the easy stroll along the boardwalk to this interesting lookout. Not difficult at all, especially good for those who only like walking on the flat.
