After months of dry hot days dangerous days, the rains have finally come! Itching to get out, I decided to head down to the local waterfall. I wasn’t disappointed. I took a few short videos along the way so hope you enjoy!
The trail was a little overgrown as folks were presumably less likely to walk to a waterfall that had not been flowing. I bashed my way along getting covered in tree rain along the way.
I noticed a number of pieces of carrot and sweet potato scattered in the bush. There was also a pvc water tube and a water bowl. Seems someone has been looking after the local wallabies during the recent heatwave.
I could hear the roar of the waterfall as I approached. It was amazing! The creek was in full flow and careening over the edge! I climbed down to the bottom to get a full front on view. The usual rocky floor had disappeared completely beneath the water and I could only look on from atop a large rock to one side. The water met up with a second creek, that was seldom more than a trickle, and flowed away down the valley towards its eventual meeting with Berowra Creek.
I felt amazing after this walk. It was incredibly uplifting to see the creeks coming alive again. It was exactly what I needed.
