Once we had walked the sandy edges of the Pieman River, eventually we were able to see massive waves breaking across the rocks of the northern shore. Repeating ribbons of breakers rolled onto the long white sandy beach of the southern shore. Edging the beach were scrubby bushes and grasses wildly blowing with the breeze generated by the moving sea.
The 4WD track to the Pieman Heads is almost impassable especially when access bridges are uncrossable and creeks are high. When the Pieman River shack fishermen are able to get through the bush, they then need to wait for low tide in order to drive along the beach to reach their sheds and shacks.
The photos below shows views looking back up the Pieman River from near the Heads, on the southern side.
