This is a lovely walk through the bush to the Blue Lake. Once at the lake, we took the uphill route up to the lookout which is spectacular and then back via a different trail. Altogether it’s about 8km and done if it is a...More

The round trip took us just under 3 hours and that included an apple and a drink at Blue lake. I even took my mum who has arthritis, and dodgy knees. The walk is mostly flat, tremendously serene, and pretty uninhabited at this time of...More
