The view and the track is awsome. Went there on ferry and ferry ride was also worthy. Beautiful combination of sea and mountains. There are benches after a short walk for relaxing and balance your breath 🙂

If you are already in Devonport, take the time to hike up to the top of Mount Victoria. The views are gorgeous.
