If you like bush walks then you will enjoy this - nice wide paths (although there are no signs so we went round in circles). Laughed at the "dissenters cemetery"

Lovely bushwalk. Mostly natural bushland, it is an enjoyable walk on a nice day. It is up near the lighthouse, an easy walk from where the cruise ships tenders let you off. Also a cemetary in there which I liked to wander around.
