Smooth & flat
This short walk takes in some spectacular views from the highest point on the peninsula. In season, there are many wildflowers to enjoy in the area - especially Gymea lilies and a wide range of orchids for the keen observers. It is possible to extend this walk by starting from the cycleway on Stockton Street, enjoying the bushland up close as you climb the steep road. Let us begin by acknowledging the Worimi people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
