Then we proceeded to go to one of the many walking tracks of the national park. For Jo’s Monday Walk
Every turn offers stunning landscape, dramatic volcanic features, unspoilt and wild beaches and scenic walking tracks with spectacular ocean views. For Jez’s Water Water Everywhere
We chose this track which was supposed to be an easy walk. We went on boardwalk, and coastal paths, including many steps, going up and down one step at a time!
Also found some beautiful rock formations along the way.
At last…we reached the bottom and this was the beautiful view that’s filled with boulders, rocks and dark coloured stones.
Upon reaching the very bottom, there was nowhere else to go but back up.
