HI Leo

Google Maps  golf courses near you as some have ponds and small creeks which hold string weed 

Only check them out late in the day when golfers are gone .

HI  Leo

Some of my best weed has come from farm creeks on the south coast as it is also in the fresh .

I’m based around the parramatta river also and trying to get into luderick, would be happy to share a few spots if I find the sea weed for them.The only spot I can think of with multiple drains running into the water is around five dock, although I haven’t seen any of the green weed there.

thanks mate , i think its best if we  look for it around the rocks  somewhere ,  because by the sound of it  there's not that much of it around

If you can travel  there is still weed & cabbage growing in rock pools & on the ocean rocks

Try google earth , I find it better than the maps . On the north side of the river try westward of the meadow bank rail bridge - Melrose park , behind Ryde/ parramatta golf course . There are also canals around the Canada Bay Area on the south side of the river and at Rhodes next to Homebush bay drive- access is via Australia ave . Might be worth looking around up the lane cove river , I have never done this so can’t say if there would be weed there .
