We were staying out here and decided to do this one morning before breakfast. It was a lovely easy walk - saw a couple of birds but hoped to see more. Still, a very nice way to start the day :-)

This is a lovely walk. It's nice and level so easy for most. Great for my old arthritic dog. Standing on the bridge, about half way round, you can stop and enjoy the views. All the walkways, over the water are good and sturdy.

Lovely meandering walk through the estuary area. Some shade on the short ease walk. Can expand on this and spend a couple of hours walking this interesting spot. Lovely spot for a swim also.
