Remember to take your binoculars if you want to birdwatch or whale watch.

Meander through the lush rainforest and you’ll emerge at this spectacular setting. Overlooking Kings Beach, you can’t find a better spot to sit and contemplate the natural beauty around you. The views are incredible – a wonderful coastal panorama of secluded beaches, rocky coves and dense rainforest.

In winter and spring, it’s a fantastic vantage point to spot migrating whales, and great for birdwatching too. Watch for the clash air and sea wildlife as white-bellied sea eagles dive for food. Also, during this time, the headland bursts with colour when the wildflowers are out.

Take a moment to learn about the Aboriginal story behind Three Sisters, which tells the tale of three sisters who were turned into the rocky outcrops near the headland. Alternatively, you could just stroll along the beach, dip your toes into the glistening blue waters, and enjoy the serenity under a shady tree at the rainforest edge.
