Things to do in Wee Jasper

Wee Jasper is a beautiful place. A lot of people think because there is no shop and the pub is not always open that it's a bit boring but if you've got time on your hands and a sense of adventure - or if you just want to relax - you can easily fill your day.

Curl up in the sun with a good book, play with the kids, dogs are welcome at the campgrounds so some doggy time is always fun.

For the adventurous - currently there is great kayaking (BYO) or if you have a small boat you can put it in Burrinjuck Dam at WJ. You can go caving, abseiling or bushwalking. There's lots of room for bike riding and some cool mountain bike spots if you search them out. All this is self-guided so don't expect to arrive and someone will take you caving... There are some companies that do caving like REAL Fun - look them up on the web and once a year the Canberra Speleos do a day for beginners.

You can also walk the Hume and Hovell Walking Track.

Camping is cheap and camgrounds well maintained. Just $7.50 per adult per night. No power though. There are free hot showers - put some $$ in the donation box though as the Trust that runs the place is not for profit and do a great job. Free electric bbqs at 2 reserves.

If the pub is open it is a good spot to sit in the evening and watch the fish rising. Fishing is good too with trout in the Goodradigbee River and Micalong Creek. There are also yellow belly, Murray Cod and of course Carp for a bit of fun.
