Batemans Bay Bushwalkers: Salt Water Creek

Nineteen walkers fronted up for an 11km hike west of Mogo in the Salt Water Creek area. This is a Betty Richards walk so the attendees were told to expect hills, bike tracks and forest roads, a staple of her walks. The weather was kind to us with enough sunshine to stave off the morning chill but not too hot for the hike. One section of the walk followed the water pipeline coming from the pumping station on the Buckenbowra River and ends at the Deep Creek Reservoir. It presented the steepest descent and climb on the day and quieted down our noisy group of hikers. An interesting feature of the walk was the section that skirts the tidal mud flats of Waterfall Creek where there are extensive mangroves which surprised some of our walkers who did not realise how far the Clyde River drainages reach inland.
