    I would be interested to know if any of it was between the Ski Tube and Gaden Hatchery. I have looked at the river from Thredbo to Bullocks Flat (easily doable, I think), and paddled it from the hatchery to Waste Point (doable I know) but I have heard disturbing stories of the water between Bullocks and Gaden.

    Legs I can’t tell you what the rapids are like between the ski tube and gadens but I can tell you that none of the footage would be that area.

    No, I think it was Thredbo to Diggings, and Charlotte Pass to Guthega Dam, I like the skiers walking up as they carry down.

    The bridge as you come in I think, maybe even the second one, but I think its that first one, where the river runs next to the snowmaking pond.

    I'm glad you got your camera back!



    I lost my 3D GoPro in Sydney harbour and came back with divers to find it 3 days later.

    Start at 01:24 to watch me lose the camera & see the reaction when Barry the diver turned the camera on to get my reaction once he found it.

    Getting back lost cameras is always a cool story.
