Pretty much any. First, try from the dawesvill bridge. Pull in just before the bridge on the right side - there is a restaurant there called Hot Rock. Then there is a walk way under the bridge.

 

Then, walk over the bridge and down to the edge of the cut. You will now be on the south side / dawesville side. Walk along towards the ocean and you will come to a little marina. There often in there herding fish.

 

No guaranteed time to see them, but there are normally a few about most times of the day.

 

If your about late afternoon - say 5pm ish. Then after doing the dolphins, drive over the bridge and head south and about 5 minutes you will go past several possible turn offs on the right. Take the one signposted for Nursery. Drive around and make sure you get to the park. There are masses of kangaroos. There is a kids play area in the park and surrounded by Roos.

 

If you want a coffee / bit to eat, then the first left after the bridge (when heading south) follow the road round and you will get a nice little place opposite the Peel.

It's a pretty quiet cafe by Dome's usual standards but has a fantastic view from the alfresco and great, friendly staff also. Well worth a visit.

Rob, my new home is literally a 5 min walk from the Scarborough Dome. Maybe next time when I'm down there I will pop in. Are you enjoying your training?

Yeah training is going ok but I'm a bit of a muppet at these things TBH.

 

I am there at Scarborough along with my wife and daughter for just the rest of this week and then back at Hillary's Marina.

I suppose you get to a point, where you just want to get on with by yourself, but nearly there.

Went to see the dolphins at the cut today, fantastic! they put on a good show and came right by our feet, my daughter was delighted. thanks for the tip, it is a well kept secet as in Perth a place like that would be packed but there were only 4 or 5 other people around watching.

I'm flying out in two weeks time and have to say that I've been feeling slightly anxious about lots of things like leaving family and friends but these photos have reminded me why I'm off and the rain rattling the window in the middle of a UK summer is helping loads too!!!

 

Great photos everyone!
