Starting from the car park at Burgess Cove off Rocky Cape Road, Rocky Cape National Park, this walk takes you past South Cave. This short and easy walk leads to a large sea cave formed in the quartzite cliffs at Rocky Cape, with superb coastal views towards Table Cape and Sisters Beach. South Cave was the first cave in the area to be used as an Aboriginal shelter and is filled with shells, bones, ancient stone tools and other artifacts resulting from thousands of years of occupation. Visitors aren't allowed to enter, but there's a viewing platform with interpretive signage and great views of the cave. You can also follow the trail beyond the cave down to a beautiful secluded cove, which is a good spot for picnicking, swimming and fishing. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
Before you start any bushwalk ensure you;
• Tell someone you trust where you are going and what to do if you are overdue
• Have adequate equipment, supplies, skills & knowledge for the whole journey
• Consider the impact of weather forecasts, park/track closures & fire dangers
• Can respond to emergencies & call for help at any point
• Are healthy and fit enough for this journey
If not, change plans and stay safe. It is okay to delay and ask people for help.
