Phil and I have been here a few times together and recommend the following adventures on the island:
Woolamai Beach - a beautiful surf beach, which is epically long. When you arrive, go left towards the cliffs and explore the area. If it’s low tide (you can go high tide for an extra adventure like we did) you can continue to the stairs that lead you to the Cape Woolamai circuit. Make sure you watch out for snakes and those scary wallabies lingering on the walk. This track is about 8km all up and is a beautiful and relatively easy trail to complete. If you have more time, check out the old quarry remains on the north side of the walk.
The Pinnacles - along the Woolamai track you will be able to peer down and see the pinnacles. There is also a thin grassy track that will take you down there. Best option is to slide down the grassy track on your butt. Anyway, once you are down there you realise how big the pinnacles actually are. P.S it’s a great place for some steel wool action.
SS Speke Shipwreck - I didn’t even know this existed until we saw it on Photo Rangers. You can walk to the shipwreck via Kitty Miller Bay (watch out for those chickens) by walking left along the beach, up the hill and around the bay. It was quite fun trekking along the coast and I was surprised by how close the wreck was to the beach (rock beach that is) and how much of the wreck was showing. I think we were there closer to high tide and could still get there fine, but if you want to be able to walk out to it and get closer pictures, it’s best to head there at low tide.
