The Tower is located in a beautiful spot though it feels like you will never get there. No toilets for quite a distance.

Paths were being repaired when we were there but will be great when finished. Sad we were unable to view inside the tower as it was not open to public at that time.

We wished we hadn't bothered going to Ben Boyd tower. There isn't anything very exciting about it, although the story of how it came about is interesting. It didn't help that the area of park had all been burnt so it looked a bit desolate...More
