1 We start our adventure from a vantage point that I have uncovered revealing views to" Cape Three Points" as noted in Captain Cooks log in 1885. Be prepared to be taken by the view as we spot Marine life & native birds. 2 Next we will access the near by hidden gems & dramatic cliff tracks of the "bends" with scenic walks accessabile only through my tour. 3 Then we zoom North in our Classic Vintage VW Kombi towards the "Indian headland" to view and discuss the history of this unique headland. 4 This is a gateway to several headland reserves such as "Bangally head" located further north towards Whale beach. 5 For extended tours we can head into "Palm land" nature Reserve where we can locate some of the shy wildlife identifiable by the scats in this area. 6 We then escape and drive further north towards "Palm beach" getting lost in the beauty that awaits. 7 We check into "Lovers leap" land marked by those in the know.. 8 We then cruise past the many rich and famous houses such as Madam Lashes house & the Packer residence. I then reveal the view that inspired a well known 80's band that rose to fame & number "1" locally and abroad. 9 For "Summer bay" fans we check into "Alfs" bait shop, "The diner". Finally we land on the still waters of Pittwater for Canapé’s and refreshments.
I am a passionate local of the area for over 40 years in and around the area known as the "Insular peninsular". Having travelled abroad and throughout Australia I have come to appreciate what makes this area unique and what locals have kept secret. An avid lover of the ocean & surfer I have followed and documented many of the unique features that make the area interesting. Among other things Whale migration patterns, best viewing vantage points. Historic uniqueness and how the area has come to inspire Artists, explorers & musicians.
