Join us for an adventure at Glenrock and discover the fossilised forest on the rock platforms at Dudley Beach.

Weave along Bombala walking track through the bush with your NPWS guide, as you descend to the secluded Dudley Beach in Glenrock State Conservation Area.

Learn about these ancient rainforest giants that once grew here, as you explore this unique environment.

While standing amongst the giants of the past, pick up some skills from your experienced guide to search the waters for migrating whales.

If you have binoculars, bring them along to help you spot these giants of the deep, as they return south to their home.

At the end of this tour, you are welcome to share the trails with your NPWS guide to return to your car. Or you may like to pack a lunch and stay on this hidden gem of a beach and explore on your own.
