Canberrans feeling the need to cool off this summer

By Ben Faulks

In the lead up to Christmas, Canberrans are beginning to experience extremely warm summer days.

With Tourism Australia reporting a typical high of 27 degrees Celsius, the heat is certainly on this summer. While the heat of the day can be a boon for beach-lovers and sun-worshippers ,many ACT residents are eyeing the cool water of the local lakes, rivers and swimming pools. The state government agrees and has released a number of its own favourite places to escape from the heat.

Among those listed are Cotter Bend, Casuarina Sands, Pine Island, Kambah Pool and Tharwa Sandwash: all well-loved and iconic areas around the Murrumbidgee River Corridor. With a range of features from barbecues to picnic tables, local Canberrans can plan a full day out around these beautiful local spots.

Encouraging families to discover these various riverside parks and gorgeous beaches, the regional manager of National Parks and Catchments Brett McNamara has also reminded Canberrans to keep the importance of water safety in mind. With these swimming spots quite far out from the city centre, safety is even more important for water-seekers.

Why wait for summer?

Those who prefer to swim all year round would do well to investigate Belconnen. With a close proximity to both Lake Ginninderra as well as the Canberra International Sports and Aquatic Centre (CISAC), those with Belconnen real estate are spoiled for choice when it comes to water sports.

Whether swimming in the Olympic-sized pool or taking a kayak out on Lake Ginninderra, Belconnen residents, as well as summer visitors taking advantage of Belconnen rentals, are unlikely to have trouble finding ways to cool off this summer.
