Four of us ( the three Bill’s & myself) enjoyed an absolutely beautiful paddle on Wednesday from Devil’s Elbow at Congarinni towards Bowraville.
Despite what the information plaque states, the paddle was 12.14 kms return & we could not get all the way up to Bowraville due to a fallen tree.
We had not done this paddle for years and had forgotten just how beautiful it is along this section of the Nambucca River. Everything was so green, there were flowers everywhere and it had to be azure kingfisher ‘central station’. It is such a special paddle with so much variation along the way. The big trees are camphor laurels with a variety of others thrown in. There were cattle mooching around under the expansive boughs of the trees, plenty of ‘white sandy beaches’ along the way and constant birdsong. The weather was perfect and the rain did not arrive until we were safely back at Macksville enjoying lunch at Café Cha Cha where we could actually sit down inside at a table (some cafes are still doing take away only).
Enjoy the photos.
