A chilly swim in the local river
A short day’s paddle from Casuarina Sands to Urriara Crossing. The level was about 1.2 at Mt. McDonald. Canberra has some great whitewater right on its doorstep – half an hours drive from the city. It is generally only paddleable for a short time after rain which makes it difficult to fit in with work, family and other commitments.
Sometimes things go to plan.
Air temperature max 6 degrees C. Water temp – cold. Check the video (GoPro chest mounted).
