Discovered the federation walk completely by accident trying to find a route through to the beach. It was so lovely that we walked the whole route before crossing over to the beach and went back a couple of time after aswell.

Couldn't ask for more for a morning walk... Freash fragrant air, willy-wagtails chirping. magpies choralling, ocean on one side and coastal bushland on the other with glimpses of the mountains. Delicious.
