Truman Track

When some friends came for a weekend in July, we took them to Pancake Rocks. After enjoying the beautiful sunny day there, we went up the coast a few minute’s drive and walked the Truman Track down to the sea. This is a short track that winds through a lush rainforest with palms and tree ferns everywhere before it opens out onto the shore. The boys enjoyed climbing rocks and poking into caves, and the little ones played in the water.

The wet rocks were very slick!

We had a little bonus when we noticed spray coming up from invisible holes near the edge of these rocks as the waves came in!

There were fossils everywhere we looked in the rocks! It was quite interesting to see how many different kinds we could find.

We also found a lot of living shellfish.
