South West Rocks

South West Rocks is where the Macleay River’s journey ends as it meets the sea. This beautiful area has clear aquamarine waters; tiny coves; a peaceful bay and is surrounded by lush green forest, fringed by light-coloured sands.

The area has eight beautiful beaches, numerous river tributaries and Arakoon State Recreation Area. Trail Bay Goal is a must-see. First occupied in 1886, it is built from pink granite quarried nearby. Enjoy fabulous views from Smokey Cape Lighthouse opened in 1891.
