Another great place to spend an early morning or late afternoon. There are lots of walking tracks that zig zag through with well place seating so you can sit and enjoy the view.

This is a great small walk to take in the view of Magnetic Island. There is also lots to see about the history of the barracks and what happened during the war and Townsville's contribution.
