Discovered the federation walk completely by accident trying to find a route through to the beach. It was so lovely that we walked the whole route before crossing over to the beach and went back a couple of time after aswell.

Couldn't ask for more for a morning walk... Freash fragrant air, willy-wagtails chirping. magpies choralling, ocean on one side and coastal bushland on the other with glimpses of the mountains. Delicious.

I cycled this track and it felt rather isolated but at the end you wind up at The Spit and everything is alright.

I think they have to be on a lead but on the beach we let ours run. You have to be away from the flags. Lovely beach to walk on
