Around the corner from the pools you can also explore the amazing Woolshed Cave, an epic cave carved into the granite cliff by the crashing waves.

The 50 meter wide mouth of Woolshed Cave acts as a natural window to the ocean outside, and you can hear echoes of the crashing waves outside and bats hanging from the honeycomb ceiling above you.

Aside from the rock pools and caves, Talia Beach is also an ideal spot for rock fishing, camping and surfing with frequent sightings of sea lions, dolphins and whales during their winter migration.
