THE EXPERIENCE

Owners may take their dogs off lead but under effective control at all times while on the beach, Owners should return their dogs to a lead when potential conflict situations arise with other beach users. While you are in the area, don’t miss out on the Spikey Bridge on the other side of the highway. Built by convicts in 1843, this bridge abruptly pops out of the landscape to baffle passers-by with its odd design. The bridge was made from field stones laid without mortar or cement and the parapet features field stones laid vertically, giving the bridge a spiky appearance. It’s claimed that the spikes were designed to prevent cattle falling over the sides of the bridge, though it turns out the real reason is to help the bridge weather harsh winds. There are also the remains of the governor’s cottage on the hill overlooking the unusual bridge.
