I recently put out a request for a website to obtain tidal information for
Sydney, plus 100 km north and south, plus going
into the future for, say, 6 weeks.
Thanks to Terry Pacey for the flinders.edu site. I used this site to work out
the tide for Long Reef, Sydney 26 January. As
this site only goes ahead by 7 days, it didn't show 26 January at the time that
I looked at it. It also does NOT show
Daylight Savings Time. Nevertheless, with a couple of calculations I was able
to work out what I thought was low tide and
indeed, when I went to Long Reef on 26 Jan, it wasn't underwater!!
Ta to Denise Moore who tried to get the same website address through.
Ta also to Terry Leverich for a suggested site. This one involved downloading
Thanks also to those who suggested paper-based tidal charts available from
fishing shops. I'll have a look sometime when I'm
Concord West, 12 km from Sydney city, NSW Australia
