Overview

About the property

The Outpost is a 900 acre property of mostly alpine woodland supporting an abundant population of native wildlife including kangaroos, wallabies, wombats, platypus, echidnas and a multitude of birds. The Yaouk Valley is unique in Australia being bounded by National Parks on three sides; the Kosciuszko National Park, the Namadgi National Park and the Yaouk Nature reserve.

Situated in alpine country on the banks of the Upper Murrumbidgee River, we are located on one of Australia’s best fly fishing rivers and home to wild brown and rainbow trout. Because of its unique fly fishing qualities the river was selected for competition in the 1999 World Fly Fishing Championships and the 2008 by Fly Fish Australia for its National Championships. We are also a site for the 2015 National Fly Fishing Championships.

We are located 1.5 hours drive south of Canberra on a scenic partly unsealed road through the Namadgi National Park. Mountains surround us and the area is famous for its fly fishing, hiking, horse riding and snow skiing.

The nearest village is Adaminaby, which is a scenic twenty-five minutes drive away.

Activities

Fly fishing, considered blue ribbon water by experienced fishers. Enjoy a variety of walks from easy to challenging on designated walking tracks on the property. Enjoy spotting the abundant native animals:- platypus, kangaroos, wallabies, echidna, wombats, possums, and many birds, rosellas, wild duck, wedge tail eagles, hawks, herons, finches and swallows among them. Play tennis or swim in the Platypus pool. There’s always something to do or see – or simply relax.

The Snowy Mountains offer a variety of activities for the non-fisher or those fishers taking a rest. From the rigors of horse riding the ranges to the relaxation of a book beside the murmuring river, you can take it all at your own pace. Do this without leaving our valley or if you are feeling adventurous, you can make the most of the nearby National Parks and attractions.

Summer

Fly fishing, walking and trekking, mountain bike ridding, horse riding, nature. Swimming in the Olympic pool sized Platypus Pool with its very own Mermaid Rock, is an experience not to be missed.

Winter

We get frequent snow falls and days are filled with bracing walks and enjoying tea and scones around a warm cosy fire. Mt Selwyn is our closest ski field and a 45 minute drive away. It is the most northerly of Australia’s ski resorts with a base elevation of 1,492 metres and a top elevation of 1,614 metres. That might sound high but it’s actually lower than Yaouk Peak (1,784 metres), which is adjacent to The Outpost (see Walks).

Family & Fly Fishing Utopia

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time – a perfect venue – for families & fly fishing was top notch.

The kids loved the gardens and wallabies and playing in the river with the platypus - great memories and hope to come back.

Beautiful Place

  • 5 of 5

The cottage is cosy and comfortable. Attention to detail is excellent. The location is superb. We used it as a base to ski at Mt Selwyn and it was a bit of a trek but just fine. Three 13 year old boys gave it the thumbs up for the awesome loft.
