Ulverstone is one of the prettiest of seaside towns, and in addition, is favoured with many charming beauty spots. The beaches are very fine, while Leven Park, which is an exceedingly pleasant journey from the town is noted for its striking sylvan beauty. Further inland are the Gunn's Plains Caves, in which some splendid chambers have been made available for visitors. They have not yet been fully explored and it is believed that when they are fully developed they will be of remarkable beauty. The caves and motor boat excursions to Leven Park are most favoured by local residents and visitors alike.
The run along the coast road to Penguin, returning by the back road, provides an ideal outing. The views to be obtained are excellent, especially those of the Leven River on the return trip.
The above description of Ulverstone was published in the Advocate in 1922. Does it still apply today?
