The area pictured is the spit bridge in middle harbour, so named for the narrow low lying spit of sand and rock protruding from the high sandstone cliffs on which most of the multi-million dollar properties in the area are built.
On the small beach to the east is a kayak hire business. Here you can hire a kayak and paddle to the west of the spit bridge. In just a few minutes you can be away from the traffic noise and paddling down verdant bush shores with hidden beaches and beautifully sculpted sandstone cliffs. In the silence and splendour it is hard to believe you are in the heart of a major city.
This is the perfect time to relax, clear your mind of the panicked shrieking of climate alarmists and do some simple geology. And when it comes to geology of Sydney sea level, middle harbour is a great place. While the cliffs outside the harbour are magnificent, they are far more exposed to erosion.
In middle harbour you will find many hidden bays, sheltered from wind erosion where you can beach your kayak under the grey, ochre and red striped cliffs. There about head height you can find on softer stone where it has been sculpted by the wave action. An enduring record of Sydney’s past sea level a mere 3000 years ago, almost 2m higher than today.
Stop it Konrad, you’re making sense
