CENTRAL COAST - Piles Creek - kayak - 27 august 2011
I had an early kayak at Piles Creek.
Firstly, I paddled down a mist shrouded Mooney Creek until I reached Piles Creek on the left. The beginnings were mangroves and everything was very still and quiet.
The mangroves gave way in parts to rocks and forest. I continued until I reached the suspension bridge. At this point, the creek became impassable due to rocks.
I came ashore and wandered other the bridge and around the area.
On the return journey, I paddle up two creeks on the left bank. The first went a short distance and was blocked by a large fallen tree. The second, wound its way through mangroves and bushland. It was a lot of fun as it was narrow and slightly overgrown. I beached at the junction of two smaller creeks and had a walk around.
time: 2 hours.
