Wow what a beautiful jurassic like bay were the jungle that meets the beach is natural untouched rainforest. There is a small caravan park which I thought was a shame as the bay is not very big and seems over crowded.

This is a pretty beach area and there are supposed to be cassowaries. We didn't see any at the beach. However, as we were leaving there was one cassowary scratching for food on the side of the road. So cute!

An amazing bay where tourists go to see Cassowarys in the wild. None there when we went but was during nesting season. Dark sand and beautiful weathered rocks make for some amazing photo opportunities.

We go here regularly just for a drive. Its so peaceful and nearly always see a cassowary. A small shop/café and caravan park, a hidden treasure.
