The site provides many opportunities for interpretation and walks, including a 2km linking walk along the coast from Middle Beach to Bithry Inlet. In keeping with best practice all maps are orientated to the viewing direction. Visitor facilities are clearly marked, as are walking tracks, legend and scale. The original Penders site, owned by Sir Roy Grounds and Kenneth Myer, was over 220 hectares and was donated to the NSW Government in 1976. It stretched from Middle Beach to Bithry Inlet at Tanja on the far south coast of NSW. 200 hectares of this became part of Mimosa Rocks National Park and an area of 20 hectares was leased back to the owners until 2011. Since then this 20 hectares is under the management of NPWS and is the area is now referred to as Penders.
