Macquarie Harbour, Strahan

From Ocean Beach we went along to Macquarie Harbour via a dirt road which is well kept, just a bit of dust behind you.

I had written a little about Macquarie Harbour last Easter so just repeating.
Macquarie Harbour is a large shallow inlet and is 6 times the size of Sydney Harbour, in Sydney NSW.
There is a man made wall which prevents erosion and keeps the channel deep and narrow, rather than allowing the channel to become wide and shallow.

The day we were there is was just beautiful, scenery and weather.











The Pathway towards the heads of Macquarie Harbour.  (see map below)
The sand squeaks when you walk on it, it's so soft.

  4. The Tasmania Tourist Board should be sending you a big, fat cheque!

    1. :) Well, a tourist place in Tasmania has taken my photos without permission for tourism, at least the NSW tourist place asked my permission..
      Some times the 'bodies' ask which is nice to be asked..

    1. I just love squeaky clean sand going through the toes as you walk on it - you don't always find such sand.

  8. It is a huge area of protected water. Squeaky sand is spooky.

    1. The noise of the sand I expect you mean - I just love that type of sand for many of our beaches do have that type..
