Drive 4 hours south of Brisbane then take the Wooli turn off. Then follow the signs to Minnie water. turn right after the caravan park and go to the headland. ther's a track there for the 4x4 and drive 400 metres along that path and there's a spot to park. then you just walk down the stairs and you're there.

Park at the top of the headland and walk down the stairs. Epic wave nice barrels and it opens up after about 50m into a sick cut back section. awesome for floaters if you have the balls. take a 6ft 2' and a mini gun.
absolutely empty miles from any where and it's a great escape for a surf trip.

What left? - I unfortunately made the effort to get to this place. Waste of time. Crap waves, unfriendly locals, and saw three big sharks as well. The locals laugh at the poor tourists that follow instructions on wannasurf to get here. Joke is on you. Dont waste your time
