Elliston - Places to See


Ancient fossils
Elliston still stands on the shores of Waterloo Bay which, although it was used to ship out local produce and bring in supplies, has a hair-raisingly dangerous entry with reefs lying between the two headlands - Wellington and Wellesley Points. It is on these headlands that the unusual clog-shaped fossilised cocoons of the weevil Leptopius duponti, which are reputed to be over 100,000 years old, can be seen.

Anxious Bay
To the north of the town lies Anxious Bay (it can be reached by taking the road approximately 2 km north of the town) which offers spectacular cliff top views as well as access to the area known as 'Blackfellows' which is reputed to be one of the best surfing places on the Australian coast.
