Follow the ridgeline higher and higher through open bushland and watch the water view across Storm Bay and North West Bay get better and better. The whole of Tinderbox Peninsula contains important white gum forest – critical habitat for the threatened forty-spotted pardalote. A new access track now eliminates the need to walk up the gravel road from the end of Estuary Drive. Gravel road, several steep sections, many loose stones on track. This track provides a 3.6 km return walk.
