Once under the Bowen Bridge I could see a track continued in the easterly direction, and skirted around the bottom of Technopark.
100 metres along this track I spotted the only sign of bureaucracy.
I imagined I might surprise a fisherman at the end of the track or detect one who had made his or her way from the track to the water’s edge and was partially hidden by the bush. But I never did. I never saw anyone.
As I continued walking I spotted the township of Risdon across the river.
And then the large industrial plant of Nystar came into view.
Most prominently, the gaping ‘mouths’ of the boat building company INCAT stood across the inlet of the Derwent River (Prince of Wales Bay) from Dowsing Point.
