How can some very oddly shaped limestone attract that many people? Clearly, it must have something to do with its name: Pancake Rocks, everybody loves pancakes. When I have been here, some 15 years ago, it didn’t look any different but maybe it’s the way you feel about something when you saw it once, or twice, in my case. The third time, as for many of the ‘big’ attractions, was not so much hype that it has been. But the kids liked the views, the steep cliffs, the neatly stacked pancakes and the imaginary figures and animals one can see in the rocks.
