Day 16 - Rivers of Deception Bay

Day 16 - Rivers of Deception Bay
 
   
   
   
   
 
 

This week in South East Queensland

PRIOR to settlement, most of Moreton Bay's shoreline would have consisted as mangroves overlooking mud flats. In spaces through the mangroves numerous rivers and streams flowed out into the sea. Despite Brisbane being a large city, some pockets of coastal Moreton Bay still remain pristine in its original state. This is a perfect time of year along the coastline. It is not too hot or cold, and when it does warm up each day, the sea breeze kicks in cooling down these rustic houses under the trees.

Today's hike takes me across the Caboolture River, and the nearby Burpengary Creek, to the Deception Bay Conservation Area, a large mangrove wetland almost untouched and untamed. Caught in the midday high tide, progress through this fascinating wetland is slow, but well worth the time spent here.
