Thirlmere Lakes (June 2020)

Following the COVID-19 lockdowns in NSW, I took some days off work to explore around Sydney and nearby surrounds after a few months of being stuck basically at home. Thirlmere Lakes was a place I found with a simple Google search, south of Sydney, on the edge of the southern highlands. Being a Thursday, there weren’t many people around and after a picnic lunch, we set off an an easy walk – actually, I’d call it a stroll – around the lake, a flat 6km circuit. Can’t recommend Thirlmere Lakes enough: a great spot pretty close to Sydney, and a scenic drive down, especially if you go out via Camden and over Razorback as we did.

The start of the trail is down this dirt road, before venturing off onto a single-file track later.
Easy walk, beautiful weather.

Wouldn’t have wanted to be around when this one fell!
