Summary

An easy hour’s walk along the Place of Winds interpretive trail is the perfect way to start or finish a day out at Crosslands Reserve.
The easy walk takes you through mangroves, swamps and forest in quite a short space of time and there are interpretive signs along the way so you’ll be able to find out more about these varied habitats.
