Park up where the fishing guys usually are and jump out and climb down the groyne(the climb is pretty rough)
This is easily one of the most published and hyped up bodyboarding waves in Australia. Due to all the overexposure there spot is often very crowded with 10-20 people all vying for a change at glory. Not uncommon to see pros and local rippers down here on even an average day.
If there's a few pros out there it's really not worth trying to surf it, but it is a pretty amazing place to watch the actions as the wave breaks just in front of the rocks where you can sit.
It's a sketchy spot to get in/out and can get pretty heavy, so be friendly to the locals there and make sure you don't get washed into the rocks as it won't be fun if you do! Thgis spot is for experienced bodyboarders only, no standups (your board will get broken) or kooks (you will drown or get your neck snapped) here for your own safety!
This spot cranks during summer and is heavy as on a good swell. not so good in winter but a lot more danger involved its heavier. Sometimes the bank will get washed out and the wave won't break for a while.. you'll just have to find another spot to surf for a few months!

Sloppy and crowded - Surfed this the other day. Banks aren't even working and there is already 20+ people out here.. will get even worse over summer with all the frothing groms over this joint. Don't bother with it. Much better breaks a short drive away.

- Whoever wrote the description for the wedge is hell wrong, the wedge is always packed with locals especially during summer and can be hard to get a wave, in winter it can get massive and its not rare to see pros out, ive seen kim feast out numerous times. For the wedge to be uncrowded it has to be small swell with no wind at all
