Hey Bunyip, I know that one too – and if you sit still long enough the galaxids will come nibble the dead sking right off your hide!

PLenty of places in the Brindies but ill think ill keep those to my self and those people that over the years have done a bit of exploring lol.

not ezactly near canberra but the thredbo river near the trout farm just outside jindy is pretty darn good for a dip, nice deep crystal clear water, bit cold to start off with even on a 30+ degree day but once you get used to it…

such an amazing place.

Not to Garema Place thanks Bonfire!
I’ll know who it is when I see someone floundering around in the all ciggie packets and butts…

pine island i thought was always a bit dodgy, would have been nice years ago before my time but yeah not now that it has been noticed…

the open cut mine sounds fun might have to check that out…

It was nice a couple of years ago – but since the drought the water is bound to be mucky.

Pine Island was always a favourite of mine when I was a kid. Haven’t been there in years though so wouldn’t know if it has stood the test of time.

there’s a old open cut mine just outside of bungendore that, so the story goes, was filled with water when they struck a natural bore. I’ve been in there a few times and it was a great way to cool off. One thing you have to be aware of though is that it is *very* deep so you probably want to make sure you can swim well and that you’ve got some mates around. It’s at bottom of the steep hill on the bungendore road that takes you down to the bungendore valley/flat when coming from the federal highway.

See Google Maps

by the sounds of it tuross cascades sounds just as good.

bunyip 3:01 pm 15 Nov 07

Tuross Cascades???

i was refering too cascades just off googong dam…

roccon 2:58 pm 15 Nov 07

Thumbs up for the Tuross Cascades. Top spot. Bake on the rocks and then jump in, rinse and repeat.

bunyip 2:36 pm 15 Nov 07

HA, very true, i wouldnt really swim in the lake anyways.

The Cascades is okay if you get there early enough in the morning to get in before the young brats in theyre parents vehicles…

Sandwash is pretty good, go for a walk through the bush and you will find a nice little spot…
