G'day (GUEST) Karen,

Between February 1966 and October 1967 I worked on a number of Tasmanian hydro-scheme dams / Canberra - ACT water-supply's Corin Dam and the Snowy Mts Murray 2 Dam. All these projects, by the mid-late 1960s had well constructed and managed camp areas ... although I do remember that Corin Dam's camp was visited ... on Pay Day nights by either travelling gambling schools or caravans sporting a number of young ladies of dubious intent.

As soon as either came came to the notice of the ACT authorities they were promptly seen off the dam site ... and escorted to the ACT / NSW border!

It all did tend to bring ... o my mind, at least, the last verse of Snowy River, Roll!
