Old Storms River Pass.
« on: March 08, 2015, 09:25:47 am »
I am interested to know something about this old pass on the R102.
I once went to the original causeway, accessed through the forest way back when tubing the river was informal and not commercially restricted.
I know that the Western approach is only accessible through a locked gate on an organised tour, but I was wondering if the old road from the Eastern end can still be explored ?
Succumb not to the erosion of those born of unconsecrated union.

Yes, I've done, but I think you'd have to go on a bit of an exploration to find the road since they've changed it at Bluelillybush.
