Depot Beach

Arrived at Depot Beach and settled into an unpowered campsite in Murramarang NP. This is set back from the Beach in a very shady and pleasant environment. Plenty of bird life  among the tall spotted gum trees and a rather large Goanna wanders around keeping us company.

There is a big rock platform here with numerous rock pools and what appeared to be great fishing spots. Allthego took the opportunity to cast a line from various vantage points in search of dinner. No luck. It was a bit like throwing two dollar coins in the sea with each piece of bait disappearing along with the  hook and sinker being caught on snags. Subsequently I tried from the beach, but the moon and tides were all wrong and the fish stayed in the sea. Depot Beach is about 15k north of Batemans Bay and the fish shop there was a more certain landing and so we took off and picked up some prawns. These were later enjoyed on the beachfront with the sun setting and the last waves  of sunshine washing across the sea.

At a nearby beach there is a very interesting rock platform with unusual structures.  Ironstones have weathered to form lattice like formations and sandstones are honeycombed and from a distance look like fishing nets or spider webs draped over rocks.

Great swimming here and whilst  the water was a bit cool on the initial plunge, after a bit of splashing around you got used to it. Allthego  managed a few selfies in the surf and one of the best is shown here.

After here we are heading off for Tuross Heads.
