Freshwater Swimming Holes in Victoria

Freshwater Swimming Holes in Victoria - Order the Book The swimming holes on this site only include a small selection of those I have compiled over the last 15 years, and certain critical information for swimmers has been withheld from online users. If you'd like the full offline version including all of my top 50 swimming spots, then pick up a copy of the complete guide below.

The guide was compiled by hydrologist and swimming enthusiast Brad Neal. The first edition of the guide was officially launched in 2004 by the then Deputy Premier of Victoria and Minister for Water, John Thwaites, and is now in its third edition. Every swimming hole that I have selected is unique and has its own story. Take it with you on your travels and enjoy swimming through each page for years to come.

A few people have asked whether they can pay by cheque instead of PayPal and the answer is yes. It's not as quick as PayPal, but I'm more than happy to do it. Send me a note via the feedback page and I will let you know where to send the cheque to.
