Riding the high seas

The second walk from Leura golf course is along Inspiration Point track to Moya and Gladstone Lookouts. The branch track to Gladstone Lookout meanders though she-oaks before bursting upon an unfenced lookout with a big vertigo inducing view.

It was like standing at the prow of a great ship sailing a billowing sea, taking care to navigate away from a dangerous outcrop of rock marked by a lighthouse on the starboard side (OK the lighthouse is a mobile phone tower but let’s face it I wasn’t on a sailing ship either!)


Words to walk with:
From the Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge
“The fair breeze blew, the white foam flew,
The furrow followed free;
We were the first that ever burst
Into that silent sea.”
