Short but stunning walk

Very quick and easy but a lot of fun with a boardwalk and stepping stones etc. Did this one prior to our stay at Horizons Kangaroo sanctuary

OMG! Can't remember ever being in a Paperbark Forest. How spectacular. And the day I was there, it was being used as the backdrop for a couple's wedding photos after they were married on the beach at Agnes Water; watched both.
