MacKillops Bridge - Snowy River NP

MacKillops Bridge is quite an impressive bridge across the once mighty Snowy River. I remember reading somewhere the river is about a third of what it was since much of the water was diverted across the Snowy Mountains down the Murray and Murrumbidgee Rivers.
The good news is that changes to Jindabyne Dam will allow some of the former glory to be restored with the release being raised from 1 to 15% of the original flow at the dam.

Our camp was about a 15 minute walk from this view, on another river that joins the Snowy at this point. The area was very dry, starting a fire was not a problem in comparison to the persistance that was required at Kinglake NP.
