This is situated near a high point on Mt Adelaide where you can enjoy the superb panoramic views of the surrounding landscape and seascapes including Middletown Beach and Emu Point. You will hear about Australia'ss first contingent of WW1 troops who were anchored in a large convoy of troopships in King George Sound (October 1914)
