Port Kenny: Where To Go / Sightseeing

Talia Caves and Talia Beach

Set on the shores of the spectacular Waterloo Bay, Elliston is famed for beautiful sunsets, breathtaking scenery, surfing, fishing and frequent sightings of sea lions, dolphins and southern right whales during winter.

Stretching 20kms to Walkers Rock, near Elliston, Talia Beach offers great beach and rock fishing. Forty kilometres north-west of Elliston there are two interesting sites to visit before you reach Talia Beach : The Woolshed is a large cavern carved into the granite cliff by wave action. A walkway and wooden steps provide access onto the rocks to view the cave with its honeycombed ceiling, dark crevices and nearby blowholes. The Tub is a large crater in the cliff with a tunnel connection to the sea. It is 10 to 30 metres deep and 50 metres across with a granite base. For the adventure-seeker, it is worth the climb down into the crater. Beyond The Tub is a dramatic cliff face that offers long views to the south along Talia Beach.
