Pebbly Beach is already known widely as the home of the "surfing kangaroos" (a myth arising from a photograph of a kangaroo in the low surf - probably chased there by a dog). Although they will not be surfing when you visit, you will find a large resident kangaroo population at Pebbly quite happy to be patted or to pose for a photograph. The Pebbly Beach turn-off is about 10 kilometres south of Termeil and it is about eight kilometres over a gravel road to Pebbly itself. Pebbly Beach is a popular camping area with great surfing beach and bush walks within the park. Banksias, coastal rosemary and lomandra grow on the exposed headlands buffeted by salty sea winds. Look out for sea eagles soaring above, sooty oystercatchers along the shore and dolphins riding the waves out to sea.
