Beautiful. You have to stop and breath in the fresh ocean air and the beauty of scenery. Red earth. A definite must if travelling here.

Just driving through the scenic road that includes the cliffs takes about 15 minutes. Lots of forest growth, some sporadic houses and farms also. And, of course, occasional overlooks of the ocean and rock cliff formations. Overall very pretty, but you won't need long here.

Margaret is correct - you can take either entrance. There are a couple of look out points along the way which are worth stopping at quickly to see the view. The Cliffs that you can walk down to the beach are named ‘Orby’
