 Access

turn off the princess hwy and head to the greencape lighthouse via the signs. once you are on the dirt road heading towards the light house and you have water in sight (after disaster bay lookout). 1 km before the greencape lighthouse on the right, follow a little dirt trail through the heathland until you reach cliffs (track is a bit hidden). Then follow a path along the cliffs until you see the wave/reef below the cliffs (you will hear it if its working).

The cliff is at least 40 feet and the trail is vertical. you need help to climb down with gear as you need both your hands and feet to traverse the sheer cliff, or its a 40 foot drop onto the jagged rocks below.

 Additional Information

Most take offs are a free fall, its a typical slab to start off and then peels with a ledgy barrel. if you dont make the take off then you get punished on the reef as its very powerful and breaks on a foot of water when its big. best to surf at 3-4ft.

If you see the local fur seals suddenly disperse onto the rock shelf or swim through the line up, attemp to exit the water (if you can without ganking yourself on the rocks) quickly as there are some extremely large sharks and orca whale the frequent the bay.

There have been reports of massive white sharks eating dead hump back whales only 25 feet from the shore at the mouth to wonboyn lake only a few hundred meters away from the reef.

Atmosphere

An amazing place to surf with cliff views and an array of sea life that passes by (hump back whales, dolphins, sharks, orca whales and seals). definately a good weekend trip. It is a wild place where the heaving and almost unrideable (over 3 feet) reef waiting to tear your face off is the least of your worries when in the water at this sketchy peice of the NSW coast. If the conditions are not quite right then take the rods and get some fish. cheers!

General

Definately worth a look, but only those with a death wish would want to deal with sharks that large!
