This is a great place to try and spot wildlife, as you search the shallows for sting rays and schools of fish ,and look into the bush for birds and kangaroos. From here you really get to explore and tailor the tour to how you want. You can navigate your way between the sand banks and enter a stunning natural area called the Frying Pan. You may wish to continue further toward the river mouth, or you may choose to pull the bike up onto a secluded beach and stop for a swim and some refreshments. The water is clear, warm, and refreshing toward the river mouth, and can be enjoyed year round. Once you've recharged and are ready to head back, simply jump on your bike and head back to the jetty where the tour began.
