    Tourdescription About the audio tour

    Justin Fox has an abiding passion for the Mouille Point seafront, where he has lived since 2000. Join him on a walk that takes in the evocative history of shipwrecks, gun batteries, early lighthouses and tragic suicide. The route sets out from Fort Wynyard, along Beach Road to the wreck of the RMS Athens. It then follows the promenade as far as Green Point Lighthouse before looping inland through Green Point Urban Park. Turning back to Beach Road it passes Three Anchor Bay Beach before ending at the sculpture of the five white horses.

    Interesting walk and a unique way to see the seapoint promenade. Give yourself extra time to look at the artworks and be sure to make a stop at one or two of the restaurants along the way.
