Great relaxing walk. Lots to see and hear. Beautiful environment. It takes about an hour to walk the trail, a few steps and slight hills. Really enjoyable.

Brick Bay Sculpture Trail is a great visit. Time it late morning or early afternoon so that you can enjoy lunch at the Glasshouse. Sculptures are quirky and you are never sure what you will find around the corner. Great for all ages.
