High up on a hillside midway between Kai Bae and Lonely Beach lies a run down building. It belongs to the National Park and I remember seeing it when it was being built and by the looks of things it was planned as a restaurant and visitor centre. It was completed but never opened, for some reason.
Years of neglect, coupled with dodgy construction, have taken their toll with roof collapsing in a few areas. The gravel road leading up to it is now overgrown and barely visible but there is a path you can easily follow and it looks like someone is sleeping up there. Donâ€™t know who, as there are three bungalows for Park staff nearby but they were preoccupied with a soap opera on TV, so didnâ€™t seem to mind me wandering around.
There is also another viewpoint in the same area as the park bungalows, which at one time had toilets and small restaurant â€“ this was open for a short while several years ago but then closed for good. And at the main viewpoint above Kai Bae you can see the concrete base of what was planned as a restaurant and, you guessed it, never got completed either.
