Ricketts Point is adjacent to the Ricketts Point Marine Sanctuary which is of regional environmental significance, containing environmental features including landforms, vegetation, fauna and cultural heritage that are highly valued. The environmental significance of the area makes it a haven for the community to enjoy and learn about the environment and conservation values of Ricketts Point.
Start your walk from Rickett's Point Surf Life Saving Club, keeping near the shore and nearby paths to spot plants and animals. Alternatively, start near the eastern side to explore Table Rock point. Be mindful of tide times, wear comfortable walking shoes, a hat and sunscreen, and have some water with you. These areas can be explored for short or long walks, it's up to you. Some ClimateWatch species may also be encountered while snorkelling.
