This reserve is home to Trial Bay Gaol (1886), a picturesque ruin which was built as a public works prison but was also used as a World War I internment camp. The gaol is surrounded by rocky foreshores and pleasant sandy beaches.
Wander through the gaol museum, explore the ruins or relax on the beach. Stroll over Monument Hill
to the Little Bay picnic area, or enjoy the spectacular half-day walk from the picnic area to historic Smoky Cape
Lighthouse in Hat Head
Around the gaol there are picnic areas and facilities for car-based and caravan camping, and you can stay at secluded Little Bay Cottage.
