The 1.4km return Breakers Trail is an easy flat well signed trail which leads to a lovely picnic spot. It follows the Wave Rock Trail at first then branches off into an old quarry. There are great views of interesting rock formations including Wave Rock itself.
The Breakers Trail maybe short in length but not in interest. Along the easy path, walkers will find the rock formations fascinating. At the end of the trail is a Picnic Area that was once a popular location for early settlers to socialise. Interpretive signage along the way gives the walker a great insight into the human as well as natural history of the area. During springtime, wildflowers provide colourful displays.
