Today I explored Tallebudgera Creek with a friend.
Tallebudgera Creek is a large creek in the middle of the Gold Coast. It originates from Springbrook in the west through the Tallebudgera Valley, just south of Burleigh Heads and then runs out to the Pacific Ocean. Its known for good fishing and in the aboriginal language means “good fishing”.
Coming off the main creek is an extensive canal system in Palm Beach with many houses dotting its foreshores. There are three main canal and creek systems on the Gold Coast and this is one of them.
I often drive over the bridge on the Pacific Highway but never actually stop to have a look. Today I did just that. After exploring different parts of its shoreline, we eventually found a great area which was popular for fishing. Just beyond where the canal branches off from the main creek was an area with fallen timber, (heaven for a photographer) with shallow clear water. Ill go back another day closer to sunset to catch the light then but for now I am quite happy with what I saw, it was a nice surprise.
