Route/Trail notes

Begin your walk here at the Trackhead sign and learn about the specialness of this place to the Aboriginal people who once inhabited the landscapes surrounding the Harbour foreshores. Places such as Berry Island hold great significance to Aboriginal people today since they are direct physical evidence of thousands of years of history and occupation. They provide visible links to that past and evidence of a living culture.

The easy grade track is an absolute gem! While it may take 15 min to complete one could have stayed for an hour on it! The Aboriginal cravings, lookout and the stirs down to the beach are all very interesting. Suitable for young children as well as dogs.
