A small bouldering spot on the South Headland.

Can be affected by high tides so be careful. Also be careful with pad placements as there's a ledge at the base of the majority of the climbs that can make falls difficult

If you have benefited from climbing infrastructure in NSW, please consider making a donation towards maintenance costs. The Sydney Rockclimbing Club Rebolting Fund finances the replacement of old bolts on existing climbs and the maintenance of other hardware such as fixed ropes and anchors. The SRC purchases hardware, such as bolts and glue, and distributes them to volunteer rebolters across the state of New South Wales. For more information, including donation details, visit


Head east at the roundabout in South Moruya on South Head Road. Follow all the way to the end and take a left onto Charles Moffitt Drive. Follow this around and turn left up the hill onto Coronation Drive and then go right onto Elizabeth St and go immediately right out towards the headland and park at the lookout point/cemetary.

Go left of the fence (you can look down onto the bouldering wall from the lookout) and follow the fishermans track down to the cliff line below. You'll see the area over to the right down a small scramble. 2 min walk in, be careful on the steep track down.

Not really accessible by public transport or walking from town.
