    Lovely walk on Queens Birthday Weekend 2016.The instructions were extremely helpful. I'll just add that when approaching Beverley Rd, having come up from the underpass, turning west means turning right if you don't have your compass out. I also took a little while to know where to go when I reached the Seawinds Park area so I should have organised a more detailed map here. However found the cafe at the top and enjoyed my $4.50 coffee!.Also passed McCrae Homestead and Heronswood on the walk - these could be included in your trek if you wish. Thanks for map and tracknotes - much appreciated.
