It looks like just what I've been looking for! Easy drive from Canberra, not busy, nice bush area, dogs and campfires allowed and a beautiful river and even a beach. I want to go there straight away now! My friends have their heart set on going to Mystery Bay in 2 weeks, but I'm going to try my best to convince them to go to this place. The Far South Coast is too far for just a weekend. (And the coast closer to Canberra is just way too busy to my liking!)
My friend is a tad worried about rainfall, flash floods and getting stuck in our little 2WD though. Maybe justified, but I'd feel ok risking it after maybe checking the condition of the road with someone in the area.
Thanks heaps for posting!
