Parking the car at the surf club carpark - a walk south to the river mouth and them up to the bird sanctury and back along the road will take you just over an hour. A pleasant walk.

Visited on a blustery day but it didn’t detract to much from my stay. The scenery was great and the bird sanctuary next to it was great for pictures. The sunset was amazing, wish I was able to spend more time there.
