Not too much bird life around. Interesting hike, quiet, not too many people .

After dusk there is an impressive frog concert along the lagoon.

A nice short walk to get the body warmed up! Not much of a view but still a nice little walk with a slight incline (challenging for the not-so-fit. i.e. me)

This was a pleasant little walk. We did this walk followed by the Casuarina through to Wild May circuit. Starting and finishing at the picnic grounds. 2hrs total.
