Balcombe Creek Mount Martha
Barbara Jacksier is hosting another Waterside Wednesday
Have a look at Barbara's blog and check out everyone's post
This week I have done a post on the creek near my local beach
This creek has a fabulous boardwalk that goes about 3.5km (2.2miles),
so makes for a great walk. Balcombe Creek flows for nearly three kilometres through riverbank bush and widens into a tidal estuary before entering the bay at Mt. Martha beach. The natural opening and closing of the mouth allows salt water to enter the estuary and is an important feature of the system.
This coastal estuary and wetland contain dense remnant Melaleuca swamps and other flora and fauna of very high local and regional significance.

We walked under the road to the beach
Looking back to the creek from the beach
was quite a drop from the sand down to the water
