    No crocks? Too far inland? Too far South? Too Idyllic?

    You missed one - freshwater croc. I'm reasonably comfortable swimming in areas inhabited by freshies, but not areas where salties are known to inhabit.

    The Brisbane river is at the bottom of my street, maybe 500 yards. We used to go swimming there but the $%^& water authority have fenced our side off. You have to cross the weir and climb down the hill on the other side. Very annoying.


    Of course it recently came a bit closer to my house for a week or so

    As a kid Mt Crosby was a favourite haunt of mine
    Some very pretty spots along the banks of the Brisbane River
    Aaaah the memories

    The fence is to stop the river coming up too high.

    Couple more pics
    The pooch had a ball
    I had to stay on the sideline though and watch
    Be back swimming in a month hopefully
    The amount of fish in this system is staggering
    Some good sized Perch I spotted close to the bank
    Maybe 30cm in length...a few a bit bigger
    I reckon there would be cherapin in there too

    For us poor people who live further south (near Tamworth but in the hills) I don't think swimming would be the activity but we would be close to ice skating.
    [That's an exaggeration but it highlights our very diverse beautiful country]

    How is your convalescence coming on Chris?
    Just do it!

    Kind regards Rod

    Log Dog, that reminds me of a spot near Mt. Mulligan, west of Cairns. Probably not the same spot, but similar looking country.

    AlexS...you are bang on the money...Chillagoe is the spot,not far from Mt Mulligan.
    Wonderful country out this way with an abundance of wildlife and scenery to blow one's mind.
    Hope your memories of the area are fond ones
