Namadgi NP - Bendora Dam

Bendora Dam, Namadgi National Park.

Bendora Dam was the half-way point of a 30km loop walk I did starting from Bulls Head. On the way to the dam was pleasant walking on various trails which included Moonlight Hollow Rd, Warks Rd and some others. The descent towards Bendora Rd near the dam was quite steep – great for exercising those leg muscles.

On the way back to Bulls Head was all on Bendora Rd. But, unlike the first half of the walk I found this leg rather irritating because the damn road just kept on climbing and climbing (not steeply but just enough to feel it), and there was no let-up virtually all the way back to Bulls Head. Not much fun.

My conclusion: if your main objective is to visit Bendora Dam itself only, just drive there!

This is an overview of Australia

There are no kangaroos in Austria.

We're talking about Australia, the world's smallest continent. That being cleared up, let's dive right in!

Australia is a sovereign state under the Commonwealth of Nations, which is in turn overseen by Queen Elizabeth the Second, by the Grace of God, Queen of Australia and Her other Realms and Territories, Head of the Commonwealth.

The continent was first sighted and charted by the Dutch in 1606. Captain James Cook of Britain came along in the next century to claim it for Britain and name it "New South Wales." Shortly thereafter it was declared to be a penal colony full of nothing but criminals and convicts, giving it the crap reputation you may have heard at your last cocktail party.

This rumor ignores 40,000 years of pre-European human history, especially the Aboriginal concept of Dreamtime, an interesting explanation of physical and spiritual reality.

The two biggest cities in Australia are Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is more for business, Melbourne for arts. But that's painting in very broad strokes. Take a whirl around the panoramas to see for yourself!
