Still closed. You only find out when you get to just outside the site. Looks like it could be closed for a while.

The camp is temporarily closed due to asbestos contamination.



Wow, great campsite, amazing views on a high headland. Lots of spaces on grass for tents or campers. 6klm windy, narrow, high road to get here from main turnoff. It is bitumen but is bit unnerving in places, especially the beginning, might be a challenge if you are afraid of heights, or if it was wet, rainy or blowing hard. Otherwise, is an awesome spots, one of my favourites in 6 weeks travelling around.
