A wonderful walk through trees and other vegetation. We saw lots of butterflies and the view from the top is fantastic. Well worth the effort.

The butterfly walk provides beautiful views out across the inlet through the trees. We saw butterflies but the highlight was water glimpse through the native vegetation

We got a bit lost at first, the walk was alright, only saw like 2 butterflies (I think it was the wrong season) so the walk was pretty average, nothing exciting happened.....

Easy. Simply leave the car at Capt Cook memorial and stroll through some lovely bush trails with views that Capt Cook would have loved. Well he did travel 18 months to get there šŸ˜‰
