Explore the South Pine river.
Full DetailsWe will paddle from Dohles Rocks with the incoming tide along the Pine river and then turn into the South Pine River to exit at Bob Bell park. We will detour to explore the Tinchi Tamba wetlands and the Barungwarra Bushland Reserve waterway along the way. We may detour up 4 mile creek along the South pine, depending on progress. It is unlikely we will explore Bald Hills Creek. We will take a combination of Roscos and sea kayaks. The tide will assist us until 1 PM. Tides won't be too strong due to half moon.
