Treat yourself to a countryside retreat

A RETREAT to the country side to Rocky Hill Park near 17-Mile outside of Port Moresby is a spontaneous idea for any weekend.

The park is hidden from the main road so you will not even hear the sound of vehicles zooming by.

A small cluster of trees that provide shade with little picnic huts large enough to seat several people and with food is the perfect setting for friends and family.

One of them can be reached via a small plank which sort of feels like walking across to a magical hut.

There is a bench further down the water for anyone on sightseeing.

A barbeque spot is available to use if you are a planning a picnic.

For those who wish to cool off, the river flows close by, otherwise you can use the bathrooms there.

Food, water and other essential should be bought prior to going up.

If you want to buy some fruits or greens, stop by the 14-Mile Market or the little road side markets on your way up to the picnic area.

For photographers, the beautiful scene of the river rushing down against the rocks and the sky will give you an amazing setting to work with.

If you want to fly your drone and capture the scene of the river and everyone sitting on the lawn, go ahead. There is no shortage of ideas to make a memorable river experience.

An afternoon there is worth the expenses and trouble.

If you start your journey from Waigani Central and drive over Tunnel down Spring Garden Road and head there, you will reach the Park in 34 minutes.

When you drive past Bluff Inn and Js Café, youll know that you are on the right track.
