    Great concept of walk is great.If a brochure/detailed guide to the walk is produced suggest whoever does the work canvases people wherever a creek or river crossing is to be attempted to provide the service.i.e. name plus phone number so that provider can arrange a time suitable.
    A small ferry currently runs across Currambene Creek (Myola to Huskisson) weekends and holiday times



    Finding safe ways to cross the creeks, entrances and rivers is important to make this walk successful, as not all have bridges. The Yuraygir Coast Track could serve as a model – here local boatmen offer crossing services by prior arrangement for a small fee. Another model that could be included for more remote crossings is the use of canoes stored on each side, as on the Bibbulmun and South Coast Tracks.
    Any suggestions, general or specific, such as Max’s advice for Currambene Creek are most welcome.



    I suspect that the big east coast storm has opened up all the water-crossings. It would be interesting to find out what they are like after such an event. When we walked the coast, it was relatively dry and lots of entrances wer blocked by sand bars or were wadable. What now?
