Got some nice sunset shots and then caught a nice bream. Delicious



Literally nothing here. We thought it would be scenic and would at least see some crocs but literally nothing to see at all. Not worth the drive

Nothing here except the boat ramp, Kleenheat gas, aquaculture farm and power station. All no entry.
