The wind blows gently off the sea as you step out of your car at Crackneck Point. Atop a majestic hill, it is one of the best spots to go during whale season, to try spot one of the gentle giants of the sea. Unfortunately, I was unable to spot any but it is still a lovely place to take some chairs and a picnic and have nice lunch outdoors on a pleasant day. There are some tables and chairs available, and the view is spectacular.
The breathtaking views of the coastline are simply magical. Go to Crackneck Point on a nice day at any time of the year. It can be cooler in winter with the wind coming off the ocean, but just take a nice warm jumper. There is space to play a small game of soccer or to run around, and when you are there, you feel as though you are separated from the rush of city life. It is not that far away from shops and suburbia but its tucked away aspect makes it feel as though it is a place of sought after peace and quiet, not too far away from the rush and hub bub of the suburbs of the Central Coast.
