The Bay of Martyrs lies between the Bay of Islands and Hallendale Point, just west of Peterborough in the Bay of Islands Coastal Park on the Great Ocean Road in Australia. Here there is a lovely sandy beach with a large sea-stack / small island off shore.
Halladale Point, at the eastern edge of the bay, is named after the Falls of Halladale which ran aground here in sea mist en route from New York to Melbourne in 1908. It is rumoured that a group of Europeans were thrown off cliffs and killed by Kirrae-Wurrong Aborigines here, giving rise to another name, Massacre Bay.
