This was a nice walk. Majority of the path is decked in a wooden path. So it made it an easy walk. There are a variety of different areas that you walk through so it is constantly interesting. We saw a variety of wild birds...More

So totally impressed by this fantastic nature reserve, 5 mins walk from the centre of town. The Cath Page Arboretum is interesting in itself and demands more time from interested flora fans. The nature reserve itself, with km of well graded paths and extensive boardwalks...More

Fairly disappointing visit, essentially due to the lack of signs and directions. The old cemetery was interesting for a wander but basically had little information on specific graves to look out for, but it was the boardwalk section that was most frustrating. We frequently came...More
