Some video around Broken Bay

One of my favourite spots so far.  Broken Bay is deep water with lots of well maintained mooring buoys and heaps of bays and inlets to mess around in.

It's also the way into the Hawkesbury River but unfortunately, Venture is just too tall to get under the bridge.

We stopped at Refuge Bay first where you can pick up a mooring a stones throw from a really pretty waterfall.

We saw quite a few sea eagles in Broken Bay.  This pair was building their nest. 

Lots of small inlets and the creeks can go for miles.  We went at least 3 miles up Smiths Creek from the moorings.

At the end of Cowan Creek, there's a marina complex called Bobbin Head.  It's close to a park and all nestled in a beautiful valley with walking trails and shallow creeks fringed by mangroves.  We took the dinghy in there for a shower (best ever..) and fell in love with the place.  This is just the ride back, Terry will be posting all the pics and a much more coherent story :-)

The inlets and creeks are so deep here that we just had to try to get close to the edge.  Keep in mind that sail boats have a natural aversion to rocks and stuff!
