At the time of writing the best place to access the boulders is the right of way at the end of the Avoca St cul de sac, between numbers 27 and 32. From here wander along the bottom fence until you see the boulders up the hill. DO NOT PARK in Avoca St as this has caused complaints from residents. Park further away in Kent St. "/><text in someone&apos;s back yard. Looks like they are lost to climbing forever now.
