Amazing viewsPumping swellHeavy surfFishingStar gazingCrazy beautiful sunrises

Just an hour and a half drive from brisbane you will find the little town of Fingal Heads. Park at the end of the Lighthouse Parade Rd and follow the Fingal Lighthouse Track out towards the water and explore from there.Some of the most beautiful beaches Australia has to offer are just along here, in particular this little headland has an area known to locals as Giants Causeway.

The fishing off these rocks is supposed to be second to none, but there is no easy way to get across there. Time the waves perfectly and run across slippery rocks before the next monster wave comes in and you will be rewarded with plentiful marine life. Make a false move or misstep and you'll be in the ocean before you know it. This spot offers such a beautiful view of sunrise and is favoured by photographers.

Photographing a Different Giant's Causeway

I've been to the famous Giant's Causeway in Northern Ireland, and I wasn't sure what to expect when we found the one in Northern Australia. However, I am so thankful I found this adventure on the OutBound. We went around 10 in the morning, and it was very lovely. Hardly any people, so we got to enjoy the rocks, waves, birds, and all the melodious sounds to ourselves. We even got to see a pod of dolphins swim by!

Hike Passage Peak

Australia / Passage Peak Trailhead Parking

If you're looking to catch the sunrise make sure to get up nice and early, as the walk from the trailhead to the summit could take up to an hour and a half (depending on how strong your coffee was).
