From the parking lot, there is a fairly steep hill to reach the waves, which are at tree-top height. Make sure you’re walking on the path to the waves, instead of toward the forest walk (it’s clearly written in yellow paint on the path)
I didn’t notice until we were on the far side of the wave walk that there is a no scooter/bike/rollerskating sign. Don’t bring yours. Honestly, it wasn’t a good place to scoot–a lot of it is at an angle, making it too easy to pick up speed, or for your scooter to get away if you fall (the latter happened to E, and a nice woman grabbed it for me while I was trying to chase it down).
The day was a bit hazy, so the images aren’t as sharp as I would’ve liked. However, when I looked off to my right, I saw Keppel Bay. They’re hard to make out in the picture, but we could see the container ships as well as the unique architecture of the building on the left.
To the left, we could look back toward the city. Can anyone tell me what the yellow circular building on the bottom right is?
We actually saw two couples doing pre-wedding photography. I took this shot to illustrate the rise and fall of the waves along the walkway. This bride was very nice when Ellie asked me to tell her that she looked beautiful (and she did!)
We visited on Sunday in the late afternoon (4-5) and it was fairly quiet. There were the two brides doing photos, the singers, people walking their dogs, couples, and families out for a walk. It was a really peaceful way to enjoy a short walk. Some day I’d like to attempt the full Southern Ridges, although that would be a full day hike, and far too long for the girls. The next portion I’d enjoy doing is the treetop walk, which is estimated at about 3-5 hours including the approach from either end (the TTW is a suspension bridge of about 250 meters in length).
