Comments on Bayview Coast and Bush Walk
Thank you for this it is invaluable. How do you get to the Bayview bush walk? Is this detail part of your description. I can’t see it.
We only did the walk yesterday and I will be writing the directions, map etc. for the downloadable brochure tomorrow.
Would you like to let me know when it is done?
