Historical Walk – Greenwich Foreshore

Fabulous sunshine greeted us on Sunday for our July walk around the Greenwich foreshore.  A large and enthusiastic group took the short ferry ride across the water and within minutes were admiring the views of the picturesque and well-kept Greenwich Baths, opened in 1916.  The route took us past beautiful heritage homes with amazing vistas from every point.  The many mature Moreton Bay fig trees and leafy areas of Manns Point Park were particularly impressive. 

We then tackled the steep climb up the sandstone steps to the lookout and were rewarded with stunning 180 degree views of the Harbour Bridge on one side and Cockatoo Island on the other.  Another interesting and enjoyable walk around an area unfamiliar to some of our members and many thanks to our guide, Len Dowsett.
