What am I getting into at Kambah pool?

By new-berran - 16 January 2009 63

Good afternoon all

I have just returned from lunch where i witnessed an interesting debate relevant to the current hot weather we are having.  Whilst chatting about local water holes, the two people I was eating with entered into a debate regarding Kambah Pool.  In short, they were trying to determine if it is a nudist beach or a gay nudist beach? As someone who is quite new to the city, I really need to know the correct answer as the two are quite different!

Any wise locals wish to comment?

What’s Your opinion?

The ungratefull half of the current wishuwell life experience and myself spent yesterday evening in the water and I got to say it was fantastic. We were there till about 9:45. On the way back to the car torches guiding the way tuhotcwle thought she saw some bods in the bushes and asked if we should assist in guiding them back to the car park as it was very dark. Luckily it was dark enough that she didn’t see the look I gave her. Naivety where would I be without you.

From memory when you drive down there I think there is a fork in the road. If you go right there is a nudist bit (as mentioned a fair walk from the carpark) but if you turn left you avoid the whole question

or lesbians that look like ageing fat men……

The nudists, gay & straight alike, are (as mentioned) 500m or so upstream.

Umm, isn’t it downstream?

Because I have walked upstream from there many times, but never seen people, let along fat nude men.

The gay area further down is almost completely overgrown now and far fewer go there than in years gone by.

> Any lesbian parts?

I think the first comment answered that…

“The only people there were aging fat men.”

Any lesbian parts?

There’s no nudists near the car park, regardless of sexual preference. The nudists, gay & straight alike, are (as mentioned) 500m or so upstream.

Wide Boy Jake 9:25 am 16 Jan 09

The area near the carpark is straight nudist. The gay area is further on.

90% of Kambah pool is non nudist swimming hole. Always used to be a favourite as a kid for nice deep water that was actually moving a little bit and not stagnating…

To get to the nudist part its a 500m or so trek down the riverbank.

I always thought that the part of Kambah Pool that you drove to and parked at was just a swimming hole in the river without any particular designation. There was always apparently a nudist part, but further along the river.

How are they different?

Nudist, not gay.

Go to the Cotter or Uriarra…

I went there 20 years ago harbouring teenage fantasies of what a nudist beach must be like.

The only people there were aging fat men.

I haven’t been back.
