One of the best diving areas in the country. South West Rocks is particularly famous for Fish Rock Cave. This ocean cave swim through dive runs for more than 100m. Huge variety and numbers of fish, large Rays, Turtles and Sharks in the cave. Also in the area is Green Island, a Grey Nurse Shark habitat and Black Rock a nice dive with some coral and lots of turtles. Great fishing off the seawall ..
Just out of South West Rocks is this beautiful park with beaches, nice tracks and campsites. Try the guided tour of Trial Bay Gaol for $11. The campground nearby has great facilities but is very busy. Take the walk to Smoky Cape Lighthouse which takes around 4 hours or swim at Gap Beach.
