AUSTRALIA - LAKE MACQUARIE - POURMALONG CREEK - KAYAK - 17 DECEMBER 2013

A hot sunny day.


I drove to Pourmalong Creek for a kayak. The creek runs into Lake Macquarie near Morriset.

I turned into Silky Oak Road, which is a private road leading to Morriset Psychiatric Hospital. Just after the bridge there is public access road - Eucalyptus Drive. There is plenty of parking and access to the lake.

I paddled north and turned into Pourmalong Creek. It was very quiet (except for the cicadas) and clean. Highlights included - a low bridge, kangaroos along the creek bank, eagle and other birds, fish and submerged and semi submerged logs that made for a good obstacle course.

The GPS map wasn't quite right on the end part of the paddle for some reason.

distance - 8.1 km
time - 1 hr 38 mins
av speed - 5.1 km/h

SYDNEY, COOKS RIVER KAYAK - 11 OCTOBER 2017

At Sydney again so I decided on a kayak along a part of Cooks River and Wolli Creek. It was a bit difficult finding a place to launch...
