Sit back and enjoy this peaceful spot from one of the many sheltered nooks or picnic shelters. Wander down to the wetlands around the mouth of the Wallagoot Lake for some colourful birdwatching.
You could take the short 200m walk to Wine Glass Bay, where you’ll encounter spectacular views. Continue another 100m to the ocean beach where you can enjoy a refreshing swim or a peaceful afternoon of beach fishing. If you’re feeling energetic, why not explore the southern part of the Kangarutha walking track?
