Description

On November 18th, 1805, this flat swampy area between North Head and McKenzie Head was actually an ocean beach with breakers rolling in from the vast expanse of the Pacific. Four days after he had first sighted the ocean from Baker Bay, Captain William Clark camped here with a party of eleven men, and then Clark headed about ten miles up the coast to get as far as a beach near where Clark's Tree now stands.
