Cruising Jerrabomberra Wetlands

28 April 2013: This morning ‘Captain Nemo’ and I cruised into the Jerrabomberra Wetlands on their open day in my double sea kayak the ‘Big Bopper’. It’s hard to imagine that our wetlands are only 5kms from our CBD and only a stone throw from Lake Burley Griffin’s foreshore. They are easily accessed and you can enjoy them by walking, bike riding or as I prefer, kayaking.  Either way, what ever mode you opt for you will have an enjoyable experience. I hope that you enjoy the shots.

We decided to take time out and explore.

It’s such a pretty place.

I have experience some of the most amazing sunrises up here.

We thought that we would stop and have a quick chat with the locals. Now remember this is only 5 Kms away from the CBD of the capital city of Australia.
