Our headlands are of the Triassic Age (199 to 251 million years ago), formed from a sequence of sedimentary rocks including interbedded sandstones, siltstones and claystone formations. They’re perfect for bird, dolphin and whale watching, exploring lighthouses, caves and former aboriginal campsites. Here we’ll look at some of the best headlands for urban explorers.
