PATONGA WETLANDS MTB AND PATONGA BEACH - 25 NOVEMBER 2016

I drove over to Patonga on this morning.


Patonga is a pretty small town nestled on a small area of land between Patonga Creek and Brisbane Water National Park. There is only one road in and out.


I parked at the end of Jacaranda Ave for the start of the Patonga Creek Wetlands trail.



The track started off easy with a gate to pass through or over. After a short distance a boulder strewn creek cuts across the track. It was a little difficult to cross. there are two ways go high and lift the bike up and down large steep boulders or go low and use the bike to balance while you hop from rock to rock through the water. I tried both ways and probably the water way was easier ... relatively.


The track winds its way through the vegetation and side tracks lead to creek with pretty views.


A some point the vegetation widens out and changes from bush to mangroves. This was heaps of fun to ride through ending in a number of dead end tracks. A track best to do at the lower tide as it is water at high tide.



A fun but don't open your mouth because of the thickness of the flies 2.51 km ride.

Next, I went for a swim at Patonga Beach.


The water was very calm and refreshing, the view so pretty and the beach so relaxing.
