Rockpools

Best way to start your day

If you’ve ever had the thought you wish you had flippers instead of feet, you’re likely going to want to scope out our local rock pools. A quiet dip in one of our four rock pools is the best way to start your day or wind down with a sunset dip before dinner.

This beautiful, tucked-away rock pool is a fantastic place to snorkel or swim. It is accessed via a walkway about 50 meters long starting at the Boat Harbour Reserve. The rockpool floor is natural rock with sandy beach at the shallow end. Boat Harbour offers plenty of parking with basic amenities.

There is ample parking with change rooms and amenities on site. The pool has a smooth, sloping concrete floor and nearby is a separate concrete-formed children’s wading pool.
