This picturesque walk in the Beachport Conservation Park takes you under a canopy of trees around the shores of Woolley Lake. The short detour to the lookout offers rewarding panoramic views of Beachport, Lake George, the Southern Ocean, the Woakwine Ranges and Rivoli Bay.
Located in Railway Terrace toward the entrance to the Beachport Conservation Park. Follow a well-defined path through natural bush with a diverse variety of native plants. At the end of this walk is Lanky’s Well, which was dug to provide water for the Police horses. Lanky Kana, a member of the local Buandik people, was employed by the Police as a tracker. Part of his duties included the care of the horses and he also camped by the well, hence the name.
