 After the Birchgrove Park we had a second dive in mind.  Wayne has found on MIchael McFadyen's website The Pinnacles.  This is a relatively shallow dive site off one of the points where Pittwater joins the Hawkesbury.  Michael had described the site as most interesting close to the point.  He was right.  We anchored in 15 metres and could  see the bottom.  The bottom is clean sand with a very distinct sand line made up of very large boulders.  These boulders create many channels and swim throughs and is full of fish life.  Groper, yellowtail, stripeys, bullseye, cuttles to name a few.  There were large schools of fish and we enjoyed being amongst them  This was as close to the tropics in terms of abundance of fish life as I have seen for a while.  The viz was fantastic, the water warm and the diving best between 10 and 15 metres where most of the fish life and swim throughs are.  We found 2 wobbiegong.  A large one resting in a small cave and then a smaller juvenile resting on rocks.  Wayne saw it, and once he had swam past it decided to move on, swimming directly below Wayne.  It did this a second time and again swam directly below Wayne.  I don't think Wayne even saw it there.

When you drive an hour twenty to the boat ramp at Brooklyn, then a long flat out run down the Hawkesbury to the heads, then another 5-6km to the Birchgrove, a second dive as good as this one is the icing on the cake.  We will visit again.
