Best visited in a 4WD as the roads are rather rough and unsealed. The windswept coast of the Great Southern Ocean is just amazing. We visited on a wet, windy day which showed us the fantastic fury of wind driven waves on craggy coastlines.

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.
