An attractive area that has seen much history with the establishment of a whaling station and the wrecks of ships. Today it is virtually unspoilt, with shore-wading birds and pelicans feeding on the long stretches of beach. Many hours can be spent exploring the large bay or driving along the coast to the south. The track is rough, but passable with a conventional vehicle, and leads to a horseshoe-shaped cove, site of a popular surf-break.
Note: trekkers to Cape Gantheaume should discuss their plans with National Parks staff at Kingscote before beginning their trek. The need for adequate and appropriate equipment is essential. Camping, swimming, fishing, toilets.
