Big flush refreshes the Snowy
Jim Mcclymont | August 2016

The jetty at the Marlo boat ramp is a popular place for families to relax and have a fish.

The winter arrived in the form of an east coast low that moved all the way down from Queensland and along the NSW coast and around the corner into our area of Victoria.
