sunday drive: st heliers bay look out

mt cambria

Sunday morning we went exploring the grounds at Mt Cambria (yet another park about a 5 min drive from the house) with our neighbor Gus. We followed the paths, rolled down hills and chased dogs.

Mt Cambria was originally a volcanic cone which was quarried away to provide roads, garden walls and ship ballast. The area has gardens, walkways and also the Devonport Museum (which we have yet to see because it is only open on Saturdays and Sundays from 2-4pm). It has fabulous hand-crafted steps up and over the bluffs of the old of all the small stone walls along the path kept the kids on the walking trails and out of the bush.
