Enjoy a morning walk from Gantheaume Point to Cable Beach

Located approximately 6 km from town, this is a scenic area of red, craggy cliffs providing a stark contrast to the azure water below. Dinosaur footprints over 120 million years old can be seen here when tides are less than 1.5 metres. As the reef area is very fragile, care must be taken when exploring this area. For the benefit of visitors a plaster cast of the tracks has been embedded at the top of the cliff. On the north side of the point is Anastasia’s Pool, a small man made rock pool built by a former lighthouse keeper for his wife Anastasia who was crippled with arthritis.
