Landing Comments:

Easy on gravel, pebble, cobble beach. Scattered larger rocks. Exposed NE aspect but protected from E-W, S winds. Subject to outflow wind from Toba Inlet, presumably mostly in winter. Drift logs.

Camp Comments:

One site partly brushed in level forest. Possible marginal beach site(s) offers little clearance but usable at Neaps. Several additional sites could maybe be brushed with effort but vegetation is dense.

Other Comments:

Water at creek, possibly seasonal, near centre beach slightly to W of site. Site of former homestead. Old trails or roads behind beach, largely overgrown.
