    WHALERS WAY - FOOD & DRINKS

    Whalers Way

    If you are going to visit Whaler's Way, then you can expect to be there at least a half day or more.
    Once on the property, there is only one set of Toilets, located about half way through touring.

    As for food and water, there isn't any, so a good idea is to do what we did. We brought "Subway rolls" with us and drinks in an Esky, then at lunch time, found a nice place to sit and enjoy our food.

    WHALERS WAY WALKING TRACKS

    Before we entered Whalers way, we had to sign an indemnity form incase anybody hurt themselves.
    This could be quite easy to do here, as some of the tracks were terrible [see photos].
    Make sure when you are walking that your looking at where you are placing your feet, as you could easily fall, break or sprain an ankle.
    Also, on the cliff edges be very careful as the wind is extremely strong and the cliffs have been eaten away underneath by the wind.

    Be Aware of White Pointer Sharks and Freak Waves

    by brons17 Updated Feb 22, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Care needs to be taken as always showing respect for the sea and observing local warning signs and I must also mention we are the home of the great white pointer shark and people are still being taken by sharks here unfortunately at certain times of the year.
    Also there is a long history of fishermen and tourists being swept off rocks by freak waves so always remember never to walk on areas where the rocks are wet and observe waves patterns. Australia is also dangerous for "rips" in the sea where a person can be swept out to sea very quickly in an unseen undercurrent.
    Its best to undertake activities with other people and let someone know where you are going even if it is the local police.
    It best to use the help of local experts to find the best places for different activities and you will find most people very helpful if you ask.
