This is a nice place to visit and have a walk around. Easy paths, just one long stair up. Saw several bird species. Great views back to Victor Harbour.

Did a walk to Granite Island along the horse drawn carriage that was taking people there and back. We went up the hill and noted the historic landmarks and the beautiful scenery. A nice experience.
