  • Army bay is beautiful. Amazing place to swim at any stage of the year. If you can, go walking around the park before sunset. So many native birds to see.
  • Beautiful spot! Have 3 bays to choose from! Toilets were clean and well looked after!! Also seemed to not be too busy either, which we liked! :)
  • Popular place my family and i visit shakespear has peacocks running around good walks on the trails Army bay swim when tide is in or out.
  • So great to have this park right on the coast. Walking the nature trail is a refreshing getaway from the bustle of town to peacefulness and birdsong. You can walk up to a lookout point with expansive views of the surrounding Gulf. You have the option of cycling this particular section. Also interesting with some WW2 history. Has a very nice safe sandy beach below with open grass park areas in which set up a picnic.
  • Found an unusual Beach here with cliffs vaguely reminiscent of the beach cliffs in the original Broadchurch series. Strange blocky volcanic flows with the rocks flowing down to the sea and segmented into squares. I didn't explore much of this Regional Park as it was a grey cold miserable day when we went. What I did see put this place into the 'probably won't go again' category. Wasn't particularly awe inspiring.
