  • GOOGLE IS TRACKING YOUR EVERY MOVE. LEAVE YOUR PHONE AT HOME IF YOU DO NOT WISH TO BE STALKED BY THE GOVERNMENT! WE ARE BEING FOLLOWED EVERYWHERE YOU GO! KEEP A LOOK OUT AND YOU MIGHT JUST SURVIVE! But the conservation park was pretty nice. 4 stars.
  • My absolute favourite walk for fitness, mind and general wellness. It is a scenic walking trail with numerous signs describing the cultural and geological heritage, along with some interesting features. It’s amazing to see the remains of the Australian ice age 280 odd million years ago. It overlooks the beach and consists of numerous steps to get the heart rate up. It truly is a beautiful walk, very therapeutic and extremely educational.
