The pictures in this blog post are from an afternoon poodlewalk in 2017 initially to Kings-Head in Waitpinga, and then on to a rocky outcrop just west of Kings Head. The rocky outcrop is on the Coastal Cliffs walking trail to Newland Head and, as a result, we often meet walkers coming from Waitpinga Beach.
The rocky outcrop is near the foot of the Waitpinga Cliffs, and it is not possible to continue walking much further around the bottom of the cliffs. The Coastal Cliff walking trail from Waitpinga Beach to Kings Beach is along the top of the Waitpinga cliffs.
It is fairly wild around the rocky outcrop as the sea surges up through the crevices in the granite rocks. It is safer to visit the outcrop during a low tide and the late afternoon is best for the light.
In earlier posts I misnamed the Waitpinga Cliffs—I used to call them the Newland Cliffs. The cliff top coastal trail from Waitpinga Beach to Kings Beach is a part of the Heysen Trail, hence its popularity with bush walkers.
