Macca’s Beach – Unofficial
Macca’s Beach is in the Juramabula State Forest, situated off Euroly Rd in the Murrumbidgee Shire. There are no facilities, as State Forestry are the owners, and have no problem with people digging holes and covering it up for a toilet. There is no problem with camping, but no solid fuels are allowed when fire bans are in place.
If you are coming from Sydney, take the Wagga Wagga exit from the Hume Freeway, which takes you to the Sturt Highway. Go through Wagga, 49 km, staying on the highway for another 100 km until you reach a place called Gillenbah, 2 km from Narrandera. Turn left and stay on the Sturt Highway. After 34 km, turn right onto Euroley Road, just after a sand hill with pine trees on both sides. Continue for about 5 km, along a gravel road until you see a canal bridge. Turn left and continue for another 50 metres, turn right at a gate, then turn left at the fork in the road which will take you to the beach.
Please note, Euroley Road is gravel, and after the canal is dirt, which makes it impassable when wet. [/tab]
Kambah Pool – Legal
The Kambah Pool legal clothes optional beach is situated south west of Canberra on the beautiful Murrumbidgee River. From Canberra follow the signs on Highway 23 to Tuggeranong. Turn right into Sulwood Drive and then left into Kambah Pool Road. Continue straight through the roundabout at Berritt Street and follow the road to the lower car park. From here you walk downstream for about 200 metres to the legal clothes optional area. It is a lovely section of the river, and barbecue and toilets facilities have been provided.
The dedicated naturists who originally negotiated the legalizing of Kambah Pool were also successful in having its boundaries re-assessed. The original section was very difficult to get to, and they were able to convince the authorities it should be closer to the lower car park, so that it is now much more accessible.
