  • Fossil bluff a nice beach with the cliffs full of fossils, like I said not Jurassic Park but interesting, you can walk to the top of the cliff and you get a great view of Wynyard and surrounding area ...  more »
  • Pristine. Clean and really what Tasmania is... first and foremost...all about. The surrounds? a study in wild native flora that makes me understand why Tassie is the Jewel in the crown of the world. T...  more »
  • I have visited tasmania a couple of times now and I have to say this is one of the most beautiful places you can visit. It is tasmania's history frozen in stone, as soon as you look at the great cliff...  more »

  • I loved this place. Such a beautiful view of the tacle cap and the cliff is wonderful. When you go on the top of the hill (to see the lookout), you can have a better view if you go on your left hand side at the top. Follow the footprint/path that take you closer to the edge and through the plants. You have a amazing view from that point. We went there at sunset and that was fantastic. The colors were incredible !! So quiet and peaceful !
  • We adored this beach. The kids spent ages rock-hunting, swimming, exploring the rock pools. Because there's no facilities or shops etc. it feels like a private beach, with not many other people. Take a picnic and enjoy.
  • 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.
  • Car park, pretty beach and a walk up the hill for nice views of the golf course and town.
  • A hidden gem of Wynyard beauty, great beach and excellent fishing. Well worth a look.... I am bias because I live here!
