After having some very average weather through Winter, we had a taste of Spring at our sailing day at Googong Dam. It was a lovely warm day. The wind was very light but the breeze picked up and we managed a sail on the return leg.

Thanks for sharing John. I don't know Googong Dam at all but it does look like a good spot to explore. Is camping permitted ?

It's a nice spot for a sail, that's for sure.

The gates are locked at the end of the day and opened at 8am the next morning. Unfortunately no camping is permitted.
