If you are a keen birdwatcher...
.....or you would enjoy a peaceful stroll in a natural setting close to town,
visit Lake Seppings. The full walk takes 1 hour to complete the walk, or longer if you plan on stopping at the bird hides. The first hide is close to the car-park, so if you only have 15 minutes available, its worth a stop off.
Turn off Middleton Beach Road to golf Links Road, the parking area is on the left after a few hundred metres.
