Road Trip - - PUT A SPRING IN YOUR STEP -

Donkin Her­itage Trail of­fers 51 points of in­ter­est on an easy 5 km walk that in­cludes cathe­drals, art gal­leries and his­toric sites.

King’s Beach ex­tends nearly 2 km from the har­bour wall to Hume­wood and ex­tends the in­vite for long, sandy strolls, a dip in the warm sea, and play­ing at the beach­front su­per-tubes. There is an open- air mar­ket on Sun­days and you can also ex­plore rock-pools at Ho­bie Beach, which has beach-volleyball fes­ti­vals.

Nearby the vil­lage of Schoen­mak­er­skop fur­ther along Ma­rine Drive is Sar­dinia Bay, where the 8 km Sacra­mento hik­ing trail starts. The trail winds through coastal bush and is pop­u­lar with vis­i­tors and lo­cals. If all that sounds like thirsty work, a visit to Bridge Street Brew­ery on the banks of the Baak­ens River should re­fresh the thirsti­est of trav­ellers. It is run by near-leg­endary brewer, Lex Mitchell – he founded Mitchell’s Brew­ery – and of­fers four beers and a few ciders, with tapas and pub grub in the small restau­rant.
