Magnificent features of the Pindari property

Pindari Adventures has well over 2,000 acres of beautiful country including a large paddock of grass trees, amazing rock formations, natural swimming holes, magnificent water falls plus 10km frontage to the Pindari dam with its own impressive rock formations such as El Capitan on Platypus Island.  The property abounds in a large variety of flora and fauna.

Our grass tree (Xanthorrhoea) paddock has thousands of these magnificent plants many hundreds of years old and several metres in height.  Although there are 10kms of frontage to the dam there are only two access points. The rocky gorges and huge granite outcrops are a magnificent sight rising straight up out of the water.  All manner of fish abound in the dam including Murray Cod, Yellow Belly and Redfin. Riding and walk trails abound and many great swimming spots.
