Newsletter for Offshore Residents of Pittwater, Australia


Pittwater Council has recently installed some drainage and an improved surface on this section of roadway. Council staff have requested that this road remain closed to traffic until after Easter to allow the material to cure and harden.

They have also requested that this become a one-way road system to the steep uphill gradient i.e. traffic travels up Hilda Avenue and down Thompson Street to avoid destabilisation of the roadway and prolong the longevity of the surface. There are plans to install further drainage in this area.

For pedestrian safety, Pittwater Council will construct steps from the start of the rocky pathway on Thompson Street (left at the top of Hilda Avenue) and Upper Fitzpatrick Avenue.

Construction will commence on Monday, March 18 and will require closing the path during construction. Residents will need to use lower Fitzpatrick Avenue steps down to Cargo intersection until construction is complete or find another suitable route. Construction may take longer than a week depending on weather events or other unforeseen contingencies.

Thanks for your cooperation

Free Ducks

Hi folks, Muskie recently brought seven new souls into the world. I have given away three to a good home in Nundle. They are a Muskovy/Khaki King cross. Apparently good eating. Eggs-a-plenty from Muskie until recent too.

We are looking for a home for two more of the ducklings, and we have two male ducks we'd like to re-home as well. They make good pets and you will never have a wandering jew problem again. All of the ducks are well-behaved, no nippers, I just need to down-size.

Call me 0415159178

This is a picture of a radio controlled speedboat which washed up on our beach this recently. Have washed the sand out of it & it seem in fairly good condition.
If anyone lays claim to it, it’s sitting under the table on the beach.
