Boulders on the beach!


Two stacks of sea side boulders. Plenty of loose holds in amongst the solid ones, due to salt expanding and contracting in the cracks, so pull off the loose holds and have fun.

Access issues

Cape Pallarenda Conservation Park gates are open 6.30 am to 6.30 pm daily. - Gates open automaticly after hours to let you out of the park.


Folllow cape pallarenda road untill you have entered the conservation park. park car near small bridge and follow track past bunkers to next bay over, then boullders are visible in the shrub near by. (keep the sea in view on your right and you cant get lost)
