South Australia
Your guide to the best swimming holes

South Australia is the driest State on the driest inhabited continent in the world, which doesn't make for a lot of great swimming holes. Two places that I am aware of, but have not reported on because I have not yet visited personally, are the man-made lake at Narracoorte near the Victorian border, and the upper reaches of the Onkaparinga River in the Adelaide Hills.

If you find yourself in Adelaide outside of summer, I have compiled a list of the warmest public swimming pools in Adelaide, so you can have a swim even on cold days.

If anyone would like to let me know about any swimming spots in South Australia that I should visit, feel free to suggest a swimming hole. A trip to the lower lakes and the Mount Lofty Ranges is on my to-do list.
