Gordon Creek is for the most part a nicely inaccessible place. The Two Creeks track skirts the stream briefly, though from some elevation, otherwise this waterway is really only accessible by water. From Middle Harbour the creek looks like just another of several mangrove lined inlets along the shore line, yet paddle into this stream and you find a meandering canal that stretches for several hundred metres through overhanging trees, mangrove environments and picturesque rock formations. The navigable extent ends near the concrete remnants of an old bridge that once crossed the valley (Google earth still shows the bridge in place though it was actually dismantled a number of years ago).
Near the confluence with Middle Harbour is a plaque that someone has taken the time to set high into sandstone wall of the creek, for ‘Streaky’, ‘who introduced us to this peaceful and tranquil place’, a very apt setting for such a memorial.
