Immediately you enter the park Stenhouse bay offers some interesting history and the first of many absolutely spectacular views which continue all the way to Browns Beach. I think this coast line is superior to the Great Ocean Road.

Main routes are paved, many are dirt with the occasional sandy area only suitable for 4WD. Normal car will be fine, use your wits to avoid sandy areas. Walks are all fine.
