Thirteen Batemans Bay bushwalkers set out on a six-kilometre circuit from Long Beach at low tide, to walk to Maloney's Beach and back.
The group headed north along the sand and thence around the base of the headlands.
The rocks there have from past geological activities formed into small, sharp, vertical shafts that require a steady balance and the careful placement of feet to avoid mishaps.
The group were fortunate and all traversed the area intact.
Walkers then climbed a narrow track, well worn by locals, to the cliff top and there, enjoyed coastal views and some interesting beach house architecture that was the main topic of conversation on their return journey.
