Cape Gantheaume CP - Tadpole Cove Walk

Description This walk combines unusual coastal scenery with early settlement heritage sites. The walk starts at an old grain threshing floor, used by early settlers to process locally grown grain and takes you past the ruins of a small cottage dating from the same period.
