  • I could waste hours here. The stones are very interesting to look at and honestly I could’ve taken home a bucketful. Might not be such a good swimming beach, but still a great place to bring a picnic and spend an afternoon. People of all ages will enjoy looking for fossils in the rocks, and collecting any particularly nice looking stones. I’ve never been to a beach like it. It’s very worth a visit if you’re in the area.
  • Fossil Bluff is a beautiful beach. Clear water and smoothe sand. The shells and stones caught in the rock is an interesting feature and makes it popular.
  • A hidden gem of Wynyard beauty, great beach and excellent fishing. Well worth a look.... I am bias because I live here!
  • Great fossil site. Mostly invertebrates, gastropods and moluscs. Some vertebrate bones.
  • a little gem, especially at low tide where you can hunt for fossils in the rocks. the walk is not far from car park so fine for kids, oldies
