Nothing beats the experience of swimming in the river. why not try the Lachlan river in Cowra. a safe passed river with a sand riverbed, the closes thing you will get to a beach inland. head down to Farleighs Reserve or as the local call it "Farleighs beach" and sit on the sand bank or go for a dip in the clear river water while being surrounded by trees and wildlife of country NSW. even better, get some inflatable pool toys and let the current take you for a ride. Bring a picnic down and enjoy it with he family or significant other.
