Sightseeing
Just a quick walk from our front door is the beautiful trail that takes you to “lovers leap” and the stairway that will take you right into the Gorge. From Redbrick Retreat, you will want to turn right out the front door (towards the arena and David St) and then cross the David St Bridge (be sure to take in the views) and the mouth of the trail is immediately past the bridge on the right hand side of the street.

Check out the beautiful teal waters of the Quarry. There is a daily maximum number of visitors allowed, so arrive early to avoid disappointment. Bring your towel/ beach chairs as there is a little beach area at the mouth of the Quarry. Across the road from the Quarry, you’ll find a chip wagon that serves up delicious hand cut fries.
