Bouldering on the headland by the ocean. Bellissimo!

Still a lot of potential. If you have an addition please add it.

Tide dependent. Best to go at low tide.

Please be aware that people have been injured when rock has come loose while they have been climbing on the headlands before. Try to stay within a comfortable fall zone on solid rock if you are climbing here. We care about you, so try not to get hurt.

Crag is listed left to right looking at the wall. If adding climbs please order it in this fashion.

Access issues

Point Cartwright is a very popular walking track so be mindful of those around you, and how your actions may affect the perceptions of the climbing community as a whole. Please limit your use of chalk, clean up after yourselves, be mindful of your noise levels and whatever you do don't fall on someone else's dog.


Park at the Point Cartwright carpark, and walk down the stairs to the headland.

Where to stay

The Sunshine Coast is a tourist hot spot. Use some google-fu and you'll find some form of accommodation.
