|Saltwater Beach to Red Cliffs|
This walk starts from Saltwater Creek camping area and heads north around the bay to the red cliffs. The walk gives an opportunity to explore the end of Saltwater Creek, the beach and the varied bushland on it's journey to the bald rock platform. From the rock platform, there are awesome views and sounds of the sea smashing against the red cliffs below. It is worth spending some time exploring the rocks, being careful to stay clear of the edge. (open in app)
