Anyone now the tide needed to get in and out of this creek

Any one know the tide to get in and out of this little creek.
Want to take the kids to try to find the old settlement there when we get some calmer days. Possibly next Sunday, but not sure how much water I will need yo pull up in this creek.
Also would you go from leaders or salt water arm? But sus on leaving my 4wd at SWA Ramp.

5m plus safely. but maybe 3.8 risking it good jacks sometimes in that one... But, if you want a crack at a bit of an explore.

where's the ruins mate ? Thought escape cliffs would be a better area to live.

SWA . is fine most of the time even on overnighters - probably safer than palmerston streets make sure your lighting is secure tho. :naughty:

Leaders is a bit further for sure and risks a sh..ty ride home near pt stephens if you get a storm like this arvo. Up to you, either way you'll need 2.6 to retrieve without hanging the trailer off the end at SWA.

I have been in and out 3.0 mtr tide sand bar left hand side. Stick to the right . Nice and deep once in. there are a lot of dead trees near the sand bar that make a good fire. If the creek is dead it's been netted but if alive good barra there. as you leave on the lhs is a rocky reef area. Trolled for trevers and queens, small but fun. The crabber parks out there sometimes.

Nice hole just inside, saw something real big on sonar sitting in there once, maybe a groper.

I thought the settlement was Escape Cliffs.

"Chad's Creek" to the south fishes better, IMO.'

Escape cliffs is what I’m looking for. This is where I was told to pull up to look for it. Was told to walk back down the beech in the area circled red. Let me know if im mixed up and in the wrong area.
