Bushy Beach Scenic Reserve Reviews & Ratings

  • A gorgeous wee spot high above the beach with great access to the shore via walkways. Fur seals, penguins, outstanding surf and views that go on and on. Bird life is a highlight being so close to the ocean, a wonderful place for a quiet visit off the beaten track.

  • Good spot for viewing but hard to see unless you have binoculars which we didn’t. We saw one penguin and two seals.

  • Neat little secluded beach with a geological wonderland of beach rocks and outcrops.

  • Very beautiful place, if you wait till like 6pm then the penguins will arrive home after all day out in sea fishing. So you have to be quick, they are big but quite difficult to see from a distance. Rare penguin though and beautiful!

  • Really nice scenery and views though difficult to see the penguins
