  • With beautiful views of the harbour and good tracks for hiking, a lovely spot. Shady trees and relatively unspoilt harbourside setting.  more »
  • For a pleasant coastal walk, this is a lovely place to be. Well laid out paths to follow and the harbour to view. All rather enjoyable.  more »
  • A great place nature lovers. Good for bush walking. Would definitely come here again for picnic and and enjoy awesome view
  • Great views from the reserve. Easy walks through native flora and fauna. Grab some water at the coal loader or a coffee when the cafe is open. If your there early just beware of walking through the spiderwebs
