Marramarra Creek is a little known tributary off Berowra Creek. It winds its way up into Marramarra National Park to a beautiful campsite, surrounded by towering cliffs. As we will arrive at the campsite at low tide, we may have to walk up the creek for a short distance pulling our kayaks.

This area has changed little since the first settlers arrived in the Hawkesbury area. En-route, we will stop at some isolated beaches and Bar Island to examine its historic past. Paddle distance 30 km each way. Expect to finish our journey about 3 PM on Sunday.
