- Assistance may be required to pass through the bollards at either end of this walking track.
- There's a picnic table near the Bellamy Street end of the walk and low, log seating in the amphitheatre, around half way.
Medium access presents some minor difficulties, such as a grassy surface. You may require a little assistance to get around in some areas.
