Bridge
“The Coastal Walkway runs right along the foreshore from the Port close to the Cabin along the city front out to the outer suburbs of Bell-Block. Te rewa rewa bridge is a beautiful photo opportunity just north of Fitzroy Beach. On a clear day you can take a photo with the mountain as your backdrop on the bridge which makes a stunning pic.”
