Just a peaceful, and pleasant view that will not take much of your time when touring. It is on the way when touring the Gap, and natural bridge

One of many nice coves and beaches in the National Park. This one is named after a fisherman and former convict, Jimmy Newell, who was shipwrecked here but managed to scramble to safety. Nice to stand on the lookout and view the wave action some...More

Lovely Colour water here and the viewing platform gives you a good outlook of the Harbour , he was a lucky bloke Jimmy ending up in there. It's a short easy stroll from the carpark to the platform
