CENTRAL COAST - Ockers - Tuggerah Lake - windsurf - 30 August 2009

Only the two of us out. I arrived and mark was getting some good runs. I rig up, get out and it stops. Eventually, Mark went in as a 'human sacrifice' and the wind came back for a couple of runs.

CENTRAL COAST - Crackneck Lookout to Cromarty Hill - HIKE - 22 september 2009

Park at Crackneck Lookout for easy parking and great views of the northen part of the Central Coast. The start of the walk is at the southern end of the carpark. The vegetation varies from shady trees to open coastal heath. The track winds over sand, rock and raised wooden and metal platforms. Views of the coast and Tuggarah Lake are excellent. The views at Cromarty Hill extend from Forresters Beach and south.

time: 1 hour return
grade: easy with two sections of steep steps

CENTRAL COAST - buggery - surf - 20 september 2009

You may know this spot but it is hard to reach.

CENTRAL COAST - Putty Beach to Little Beach - HIKE - 20 September 2009

I parked the car at Putty Beach and followed the easily defined track. Once off the beach at Putty the path is on platforms or fenced off from the sea at cliff edges until Maitland Bay. Views are excellent along the way with the track changing from beach to wooden platforms to rocks and finally to bush.

Once at Maitland Bay walk along the beach to the northern end where the track begins again but this time it is more rugged and steep. Views are excellent again. The track becomes a fire trail from Caves Bay.

time: 3 1/2 hours (pickup at Little Beach car park)

rating: easy to moderate

Today there was enough water in the lagoon to reach the feeder creeks at the western end. Bird life was interesting and there was very little wind.
