Great scenery, but rough roads and poor hard to read signage. It is private land, fee applies to enter, keys obtained from tourist centre in Port Lincoln. Just needs some up keep and improvements in safety fencing and signs to make it an excellent experience.

Excellent place to see some of the rugged west coast coast line. Simple rule; read the warning signs. This coast is evidently very dangerous. However smart people think they are, selfies of smashing waves against a rocky coast have their limitations. Don't let a beautiful...More

The experience was good, signage very outdated, cost $30 just to get through gate definitely very overpriced only took about 2hrs to complete track. We would not recommend and we definitely won’t do it again.

You can get the pass key at the little kiosk thing at the gate. However, th permit needs to be collected from the tourist info centre. If they don't have any, they will be able to advise where to get them from.
