That was the sales pitch used by real estate agents in the 60’s and Tuross Heads is still a gem of a spot and our destination for the 2nd road trip of Summer. A later start from Canberra saw us at the Rustic Pizza again for our pickup at 6:50pm.
There are camps that are just too good to share, some of you may be able to guess the location of this one.
|Great overnight camp|
|The reason why we were up so early.|
|Perfect paddling conditions|
Tuross Lake is the breeding site of several endangered bird species. Before the king tides and heavy swells of the last 2 days there were 70 Fairy Terns and Little Terns nests on the sand spit at the lake entrance. By Sunday morning these were reduced significantly. Hopefully it is still early enough in the season for these birds to lay more eggs.
|Another endangered species Sooty Oystercatcher|
Both Sooty and Pied Oystercatchers were observed either with chicks or sitting on eggs.
