    Coopernook, NSW

    Said to be an aboriginal word that means bend in the river. Here we have a tidal river that can still suffer from serious flooding. The volume of water flowing from a flood can mean wet feet for the people at the Pub and some living nearby.

    The bridge across the river was here but the only part left now is the supports still in place on the northern side. Now a newer and higher bridge is down the river a bit and the highway bypasses a lovely small town. The only traffic is locals and a few travellers who know about the place.

    There is a nice park and facilities for boating. The Pub is popular with quite busy sessions. A good place to drop in for a great meal and a drink to wash it down. Travellers who are customers of the hotel are welcomed and free to spend the night in the grounds. RVs need to be self contained and must not unhitch.

    Cattai Wetlands, Coopernook

    March 26, 2018 in Australia ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    These wetlands are a spectacular project recovering from years of grazing and clearing. The walks are very easy and there is quite a lot to see. Many species of birds are found her as well as a healthy population of frogs and reptiles.

    Since our visit was on a dull and light rainy day we were not able to see as many birds. We did hear quite a few though. This spot is on our return to list.

    As we checked out the info board on the way in there was a notice proclaiming numerous mosquitos. That was misleading. With several layers of deet spray we were still menaced by thousands of the hungry buggers. Next visit will be in winter.
