A few days/nights spent kayak camping back waters of Yarrunga Creek Kangaroo Valley.

Days awesome but the water is bladdy cold, not so bad if your just land to water to kayak hopping but standing long term = yikes.
. . . did a lot of creek walking, water was nice but feet were numb so who could tell.

Explored all the creeks as far as we could go and also checked out all the many tributaries and their water falls,
... have had a bit of rain past weeks so most that were once dry were now running.

a few photos......

We camped on the old convict road, after the floods that went through, old camp spots are gone.

What is left of the old Meryla Pass embankments,
the stone masonry, still beautiful to see.
