Join us on a 3.3km easy and flat scenic walk commencing on Carrack Road Kincumber near the Shipbuilders Memorial Sculpture on the waterfront. The sculpture of stainless steel and hardwood that extends out over the Broadwater was created by renowned sculpture John Woulfe.
The walk is within the area of the four villages of Kincumber, Yattalunga, Saratoga and Davistown which was the hub of major shipbuilding activity from the 1820s to the 1950s. Experience this historic area and fascinating maritime history, viewing the historic models, dioramas and information displayed along the walk.
