Volunteer guide was local and very knowledgeable on the geology of the area. Small group size meant lots of questions and shown more fossils during the 60 minute walk.

This is a lovely short walk close to Ulladulla harbour that explains the geological history of Australia. It is very informative without information overload. It's great to see examples of all the different rocks as you progress on the walk.
