From the tops of the undulating hills, you have magnificent views of the natural, deep water harbour and numerous islands situated off the coast. Travel in land and you can enjoy bush walking in the great Australian Outback, travel across the sea and you can enjoy snorkeling in the vibrant, multi-coloured coral reef.
