Loved the history of the area & reading all the names of those who helped to get this area to the standard it is. Well done.
Very well set out with a wonderfully old lighthouse and the views are amazing. You get a feeling of how remote the town really is.

After Grassy Hill there is a walk through the forest area to some beaches and... More
