On this 2hr guided tour, we'll look below the surface to discover another world. Explore this dynamic and diverse marine environment, and learn about the different animals that can survive in this special place.
Search for cunjevoi or 'sea squirt', Port Jackson shark egg cases, cuttlefish, crabs, beautiful limpet and zebra shells as well as sponges and algae.
Look out for bottlenose dolphins that are often seen off the rock shelves, swimming and playing in large groups.
Keep your eyes peeled for shorebirds, like the pied and sooty oystercatcher as they feed on the rock platforms and pool edges.
Discover how the white-bellied sea eagles use this coastal area for food and nesting. Returning each year to the same nest to breed, these raptors are often spotted cruising the coastal breezes and make for some scenic bird watching.
Rockpool areas can be slippery. Wear enclosed non-slip shoes and be prepared to get them a little wet.
