Description: 

This is a delightful short run for experienced paddlers. Micalong' Creek has many very tight bends and good drops down a narrow stream overhung by casuarinas. The stretch down the Goodradigbee (3km) has a number of grade 2 to 2+ rapids. Gauging the water level at Micalong Creek is deceptive as the Creek narrows after leaving the bridge.
