Nature at its finest is the key to this 73km section. The Souris, Fortune and Boughton Rivers have created a series of bays separating woodlands, farms, and coastlines. Visitors can enjoy woodland horse trails, and scenic vistas. The “sheds” for lobster fishermen capture the eye and often each fishing village provides a different design – visit Annadale Wharf’s colourful sheds.
