The end of this paddle was great. There were heaps of rocks and pools and I just managed to negotiate them to get to end of the paddling section of the creek. It was a lot of fun.
At the end, I landed and walked over the rocks with water cascading over the sandstone forming small falls and swirling pools of water.
