Hard track
Skirting around the peak of Tomaree Headland, this walk is for the more adventurous. A rocky track leads to great views over the cliffs, where you will often see people rock-fishing. Air and sea animals are also active on this stretch of coast, so there is always something to see! Let us begin by acknowledging the Worimi people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
