Does anyone know if Jackson's Crossing over (through) the Snow River is open for public access. My maps show it as freehold land, and one trip report I read from a group in 1996 said they went through with permission from Bally Hooley Station (!!??)

Cheers,
Wazza

I have been across there from the eastern side with permission. That was before the started letting more water out of Lake Jindabyne, so the depth could be up to the top of the wheels on a 80 or GQ.

It's quite a long crossing with sand and rocks so needs careful walking both ways to find the best way across, the banks are quite speep (or were) so it's not to be taken lightly.

Wazza,
I have been across quite a few times (before more water was allowed to flow).
I am going to check it out again this december.
As Tony said, it is not a crossing to be taken slightly, it is quite long with a sandy island in between, on of the banks is kind of steep so depending on water level the entry could be deep, from there it is very rocky (very slow) with no chance for a bowel wave, although in the past most of the summer was very low.

Will & Tony,

Thanks. Given that we'll be on our own and going east to west (north to south from deddick trail), I'll redo the trip plan to exclude this crossing.Cheers,

You could include going to have a look in your itinerary, you don't need permission for that as the river is the boundary....
