Sightseeing
One of the easier walks on the island & one of the most likely to see Koala's. The walk leads up to the Word War 2 gun emplacements & the two forts, passing the remains of the living quarters, ammunition stores etc. There are many beautiful views of various bays along the way to the Forts.

Parks & Nature
From the start of the Fort's walk, take the bitumen road down to Radical Bay. Along the way you pass Arthur Bay & Florence Bay which are suitable for swimming & snorkelling. Radical Bay is a long walk so make sure you take water & when you arrive, enjoy the beauty of this amazing location. The road is only to be attempted by an experienced 4 wheel driver as the pot holes are enormous, so if in doubt, walk down.

Entertainment & Activities
Ther is a very professional cabaret show every Friday & Saturday night with a 3 course meal. It's just another unexpected gem on Maggie. Because I can only pick one place for each category I just have to include `The World Famous Toad Races' at the Arcadia Hotel on Wednesday night.
