Devil's Fish Bowl is a series of rocky platforms located at the southern end of Devil's Kitchen. The lower platform provides plenty of bouldering on excellent rock along the 30m long wall, ranging from vertical to slightly overhung and from 1.5m to 4m in height. The problems may not be too challenging but the location is unbelievably scenic with sea cliffs to one side, a secluded beach to the other and the big blue stretching out into the distance. The upper platform provides more challenging high ball problems on questionable rock. Climbs listed from left to right.

Remember that you are in a National park, don't litter, clean up any rubbish, don't disturb the wildlife and no bolting. It is essential that climbing in this area remains minimal impact and low key. The Westpac Helicopter and Surf Life Saving patrol this area, be friendly. An interesting experience climbing while a rescue helicopter watches. This area is not tide dependant as the Devils Cauldron or the Devils Training Ground but it is swell dependant. A 2ft-3ft swell at Sunshine Beach and low wind is fine. If in doubt look at the Sunshine Beach Surf cam. "http://www.coastalwatch.com/camera/cameras_large.aspx?cam=600&state=QLD&camName=Sunshine Beach" In the tidal area depending on swell, wind, and tide the base of these climbs may be wet and extremely slippery. As you get out of the tidal spray area the rock is superb! Even when it wet.
Access to Devil's Fish Bowl is via Sunshine Beach (there is limited parking along Seaview Terrace) and then onto the Coastal Track. Follow the track up many, many, many stairs and then around the headland enjoying amazing views along the way. A lesser track leaves the main one and heads out on to the grassy headland where you will stay right to go down to the Devil's Fish Bowl.
