Like a bridge over trickled water

Taemas Bridge, Wee Jasper Road, near Yass, New south Wales, Australia

Taemas Bridge on Wee Jasper Road

(a short drive from Yass, New south Wales, Australia)

Taemas Bridge crosses the Murrumbidgee arm of Lake Burrinjuck.

It’s normally a very good place for kayaking, fishing and swimming as it’s quiet, away from the main basins of the Lake (and the motor boats and jet skis).

The bridge is an old and interesting build of steel and concrete.

It might be a bit tricky getting our kayak up and over the wire fence and then down the embankment (definitely a two-person job) but we’re going to give it a go sometime. Good thing the water is low enough, you can see where the submerged trees are. (Lake Burrinjuck is 49% and falling*.)

And the road out to the bridge from Yass (only 10 minutes) has a pretty spectacular view from winding drop-sided hills. Just our sort of thing, I’ll have to show you one day.  ♦
