There's something about the turbines that felt really elegant - we drove up & the view was amazing. You can also walk up; the view was breathtaking. :)

I regularly walk up to the Wind Turbine along the Zealandia Sanctuary fence line from Highbury. It's a great walk although you have to watch the slippery loose rocks that can cause a fall or two on the way down. The view from the top...More
