The Maritime Museum, the nearby regional museum and numerous restaurants, cafes and shops are connected by walking paths and bordered by small parks and picnic areas, all with outstanding views of the harbour.
The Honeysuckle precinct can be explored at a leisurely pace along walking paths bordered by grassy parks, shops and outdoor heritage displays.
