Access issues inherited from Doctors rocks

Doctors Rocks is a conservation area so make sure to keep your impact on the natural environment to the absolute minumum. Be aware that this is a penguin colony so it is best to avoid being there at dusk when they come ashore. Mostly their burrows are away from the bouldering on the sides of the headland but there may be some amongst the boulders. No Dogs.
