The bridge is a very high structure, it towers above the gorge. At the far end of the park area is a bushtrack ... Follow it for a semi easy but steep walk up to the top for a view back down. Followed by picnic dinner. Then walk to Bonnet Bay to see the Xmas lights. Return home by walking to Jannali Station. Jointly led by James Moule and Esther Chow.
