Despite living nearby, I wasn’t aware that there was a pet cemetery located here.
From the pet cemetery we continued on to the harbour and then to the viaduct.

From the viaduct we continued onto the Three Kings.

We then walked along a path between the golf course and Cullen Sands. On reaching a couple of large mounds of conglomerate, we opted to head back.
