Easy track
Starting from Little Bay picnic area this historic track was where horses hauled the massive steam crane used in the granite quarry. Look for the old iron water pipe while walking through heathlands, gums and rainforest. Let us begin by acknowledging the Dunghutti people, Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
