Also: <http://members.iinet.net.au/~rokhor/canoe/images/Sydslog04.jpeg>This photo shows another log (or the same one?) across one of the narrow channels between rocks in the upper part of Syd's, probably across "Route A" in Terry Bolland's map of Syd's Rapid (no. 261), water level about 0.5m. Maybe it has been moved by now, but take care in case it hasn't. Photo taken about 1pm on Monday. (Thanks to John Wass).
PS. Terry's book, "Canoeing Down Under", is invaluable for its maps of the Avon River rapids. Every white water paddler should have a copy!

There's heaps of water for easy and scenic estuary and river paddling in the Mandurah environs - Peel Inlet, Harvey Estuary, Serpentine & Murray rivers (<http://www.iinet.net.au/~rokhor/canoe/index.html>see new pic on website) and lakes, as well as white water not far away at Dwellingup. If you need to hire a boat Wayne from Mandurah Sportz says he has a range of sit-ons and kayaks licensed for hire. Also if you wish to try different craft to buy he is located just two minutes from the water, so you can demo boats any time.
