Crayfish Bay is so named because in the early days you could walk out onto the reef at low tide and pick up crayfish. There is a steep and very rocky walk trail from the turn around bay, it leads northward towards a number of fishing platforms. Keep heading north into the dune area, but do take great care to drive around dunes and not over the top. Some dunes may have almost vertically drop offs and falling off one of these could be catastrophic. Use a GPS to locate the turn off area to Crayfish Bay. If you don’t have a GPS do not attempt this section of the trek, because it is very difficult to find landmarks and the constant changing nature of the dunes makes it easy to get lost or bogged. Ensure there are at least two vehicles in your convoy because there isn't an RAC service out here and there may not be another vehicle for days or weeks.
