We walk this often with our visitors, and they are always fascinated by the history. Museum is good, but if you just want to do the walk there are lots of signs explaining about buildings as well as flora and fauna

This is an attraction worth visiting. It was a 3km walk from our hotel but well worth it. There is a lovely café on site and it is very reasonably priced. The views are stunning with a little waterfall on the way. The museum was...More
