Photo Title: The River Reflect

Photo Location: The Needles, Engadine

Photo Description:  This waterhole is a popular swimming spot for local Engadine and Sutherland Shire people in the warmer months of the year, it is called the needles and is where the salt water of the Woronora river stops and where there is only fresh water from this point south. The causeway was built between 1841 and 1843 by Sir Thomas Mitchell along with the pass of Sabugal and the Old Illawarra Highway which came down Barden Ridge across the river and back up through Engadine on route to the Five Islands district which is now the beautiful Illawarra region. It was initially planned to be the main road from Sydney to the Illawarra but was considered to steep and winding so it was scrapped in 1866 when the road through Sylvannia and Sutherland was constructed. The old Illawarra highway was built by chained convict gangs under the supervision of William Darke of whom the township of Darkes Forest is named after. Today the Old Illawarra Highway is a steep firetrail closed to traffic but open for bushwalkers.
