I parked at Kelbrae Close Morisset. At the end of the cul de sac there is a path allowing easy access to the river.
The paddle started at Dora Creek but after a short distance, I paddled into Stockton Creek.
The water was very brown after the rains. Along the way, I passed under three bridges. There was also a number of birds but the lizards were the highlight as they sunned themselves on the branches and logs overhanging the creek.
As I got closer to the highway bridge, the water beame more turbulent. Eventually, I could go no further due to a strong current and logs blocking access. I tried porterage but the banks were very overgrown and slippery clay. I had a lot of fun paddling back with the curent producting a few more km/h to my paddling speed.
A nice kayak. Certainly, the extra water makes the waterways more vibrant.
