Parks & Nature
Wonderful views especially at sunset. One of the few places you get to see Koalas in the wild - although they are occasionally seen wandering around the place especially the school. Leave the garden by the back gate. Turn left and after approx 100m take the footpath on the right. After a bit of a scramble you get to the start of the Forts walk.
