Rosslyn Bay Harbour & Surrounds

A short 19 minute drive from Fisherman's Beach, Rosslyn Bay Harbour is protected by an enormous volcanic outcrop formed over 70 millions years ago. A bustling marina with ferries regularly departing for Great Keppel Island and local fishing trawlers returning from sea with fresh seafood including prawns, bugs and mud crab, all available from the local Fisherman's Co-op. [Double Head point to the left of Keppel Bay Marina - Rosslyn Harbour, Kemp Beach and Bluff Point to the south]. Bluff point walking track is a 2.3 km round trail situated at the southern end of Kemp Beach, a short 19 minute drive from Fisherman's Beach Holiday Park. A 600 metre steep path up to Turtle lookout is well worth the climb as it not only provides stunning views of the Keppels and surrounding coastline but is also where turtles, dolphins and the occasional dugong can be seen. A short distance along the track is another lookout called Ritamada outlook and the path then continues back to Kemp Beach through grasslands and dense rain forests. The entire walk features a range of coastal vegetation from mangroves, heathlands and eucalpyt forests, brimming with bird and other wildlife. The area is the largest trachyte (volcanic rock) plug on the Capricorn coast.
