Explore the Peninsula
Ciclovia is about you yourself making the most of having the route to yourself without having to worry about cars or motorbikes. Obviously it is a great opportunity to walk, bike, skate, or scooter the road between Shelley Bay and Scorching Bay. But there's also the hill tracks to explore along the way. And of course the beautiful coastline. Take the kids rock pooling! Or do a spot of fishing. And have a swim in the beautiful clear waters. Enjoy!!
Attached below is information about rock pooling. You can either print these of as single pages, or double sided (ppt2).
