Shallow Crossing

A da trip along River Road, which travels along the gorgeous Clyde River.
The Clyde is often billed as the cleanest river on the eastern seabord of Australia. No industrial or sewerage waste, no dams.

We went on a spectacular autumn day.

The guys from Shoalhaven Council were replacing the guide posts over the concrete ford

We were the first to cross with the new guide posts in place

We stopped and talked for a while

Ford every stream

We've arrived! Shallow Crossing

Pooh's Corner

Sometimes we go to Rosedale using the Princes Highway, other times on the inland route through Goulburn and down Clyde Mountain.

At the top of the mountain pass, there is a small cave which is known as Pooh's Corner. Apparently this cave was used as a munitions store during World War 2. The idea was it could be detonated to stop passage from the coast to Canberra, inland. 

This site has further information, but I haven't managed to find any explanation as to when people began leaving bears there. Would love to hear from anyone who can shed any light.

Unfortunately, from time to time the cave is vandalised or burnt, but it is always restored in someone "tends" it!

Toragy Point and Moruya Heads

There was a large southerly swell running as we stood at Toragy Point watching and listening to the ocean as it crashed and broiled below. 2 Feb 2013
