This Wednesday just past I headed down to the Needles with the 100 Candles fitness group. The Needles is a spot on the Woronora river just behind Engadine. A fantastic spot that’s very popular with locals for swimming. The dam upstream has a constant flow through system so there is always some water flowing through this section and its very clean. The water is very deep in sections.
It’s approx. a 2km walk down from the closest road on the Engadine side of the ridge. A rather brutal walk back up the hill on the return, the total elevation drop from the road is about 150m.
