An easy hour’s walk along the Place of Winds interpretive trail is the perfect way to start or finish a day out at Crosslands Reserve.

The easy walk takes you through mangroves, swamps and forest in quite a short space of time and there are interpretive signs along the way so you’ll be able to find out more about these varied habitats. A boardwalk takes you out over the marshes to a platform overlooking the water and along your walk you’ll see evidence of Aboriginal occupation and some scenic views of the valley.
