The last time I visited this area, many years ago, it was beautiful and a wonderful place to explore. It was a dense and clean mangrove swamp with unpredictable tide lines and endless birdsong. The ambience of the place was only broken by the infrequent trains roaring over the 1 track bridge nearby.
My return visit to place this cache presented a much different picture in present day. Today, public works has given people much better access to the swamp area courtesy of metres and metres of board walk but at what cost? The swamp is now infested with garbage, the boards are in disrepair and what is intact is vandalised with graffiti. Everywhere you look there is the evidence that proves that you simply can't have a wetland of this nature located in the middle of suburbia, and not have it suffer. Even the trains are far more frequent because they have doubled the bridge and the line now goes through to Campbelltown.
I wasn't going to place the cache here after all, but decided it would be a lesson to all, of what happens to places such as this as suburbia grows.
Search with great with care, wear thick gloves and watch your footing.
Shame on the local residents and the council for letting this place become so filthy and unhealthy. Well that's enough "panning" of the place for me, you'll see what I mean when you get there.
