As you drive to Geelong from Melbourne on the Princes Freeway you cross over Hovells Creek near Lara. Look to the east and you see a path that follows the creek to the estuary in Limeburners Bay, Corio.
Today we explored sections of the creek, including the boardwalk into the mangroves. We concentrated on the precious saltmarsh areas.
