The first bit above the weir is full of Platypus, we must have seen over a dozen, of course trying to photograph them is near on impossible with a little p&s while sittiing in the raft, by the time the camera focuses, they are down again ! Unfortunately the crappy swirl below is as good as it gets photography wise.

The river is full of wildlife, as are the banks, pulled over to stretch the legs, nearly trod on a goanna.

It's an easy portgage left of the weir

There were plenty of trees (mostly Calistimons) overhanging the river, and acting as strainers, one nasty incident saw me being smashed in the side trying (unsuccessfully) to get away from a thick branch that was overhanging !
