Starting from the car park near Mount Nelson Signal Station, Mount Nelson, this return walk takes you (and your dog) through the woodland in-between suburbs to Enterprise Road and back. A great option to exercise your dog and get away from the city crowd at the same time. Enjoy the sun shafts as they find their way to you through the canopy. Grab something to eat or drink at The Signal Station Restaurant before making your way home. Keep in mind that you can also do this as a one-way walk. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
