Blue Rope - This walk is a 1.6km track and takes approximately 45 minutes. It takes you to the western side of the peninsula where you can stop and rest at the picnic table overlooking the bay.

Birdsong - A short walk (500m) and the best track for spotting birds on the property, with dozens of different bush birds calling in the tall stringybark forest, particularly in spring.
