Head south through Woy Woy / 'Umina' Beach and follow the signs to Pearl Beach – Patonga. Follow the winding road past the water tower (Brown Room) and take the right fork towards Patonga (other road goes to Pearl Beach). Park about a kilometre after the fork on the inside of a right hand corner. Walk back about 10m on the other side of the road to find the track in past the bones.
