Reason I was vague about that was that I have the location details at home, and so am not certain it’s in the same pond it usually is (which is at one of the rifle ranges out off Majura Road) and I didn’t wanna give anyone a bum-steer. I’ll post a location as soon as I confirm it.

Next weekend (Aust Day weekend) Canberra is hosting the National Championships for the Australian Battle Group ( This weekend though, on Sunday morning, the local team are taking their boats out for the final test battles prior to the Nationals.
What is AUSBG? Check the website, and it explains all in a slideshow of photos. But in short, it’s large radio controlled model boats (about 6-8ft long), armed with cannons that fire ballbearings in order to sink opponent ships.
Drop me an email to if you wish further info.
