In August we followed the Grassy Creek (which flows under the bridge beside St Davids Church at the boundary of Terip Terip and Ruffy ), joins the Emu Waterholes Creek behind ‘Woodlands’ and then merges into the Hughes Creek before the Boathole at Ruffy .( 6kms – 3 hours) . The Emu Waterholes Creek flows in a ‘chain of pond’s formation before gushing down a spectacular winter waterfall in a small land-locked Crown Land Reserve . Many of our local creeks were ‘chains of ponds’ which are narrow grass lined channels that flowed gently between large deep pools, before land was cleared for agriculture. We saw no emus ! I wonder if there ever were emus in Ruffy .
