Cullen is built on a hill and this circular town walk has a few steep slopes. The surfaces are good and it is suitable for wheelchairs and buggies, although it will be hard work on the slopes. There are toilets at the start and benches along the route. The views will be worth it! This walk can be extended to follow the path to Nelson’s Seat.
Accessibility: Accessible for all users
The extended walk to Nelson's seat is not suitable for wheelchairs or most buggies.
Terrain: Paved footpaths & roads
Gravel and grass paths on extended route to and from Nelson's Seat.
Gradient: Short steep sections
