near Arakoon, New South Wales (Australia)
An interesting walk near South West Rocks in the Arakoon National Park. The walk begins near Trial Bay Gaol, built in the 19th century, later used to intern German civilians during the 1914-1918 War. The marked path climbs the headland and eventually comes to a large impressive monument constructed by the Germans to remember three internees who died. Later the monument was blown up by person(s) unknown. Later again it was reconstructed. The walk onward from the monument is pleasant on a well marked track which gradually descends to Little Bay, a small pretty beach. Kangaroos and wallabies were seen here on my walk. The path then goes by an old dam and continues to climb ... I walked only part way up this hill, before returning to Little Bay. From here a mostly different path took me back to Trial Bay Gaol. Then I walked around the Gaol ruins - well worth a visit.
