The Colo river is a well kept secret mainly known by locals and regular visitors. The Colo river is special because it is a pristine and wild river on the border of Sydney, only 1.5 hours (65 klms) from the centre of Sydney. The name "Colo" is derived from the aboriginal word for Koala. The Colo river was one of the first rivers explored after white settlement of Australia and has a long history that is of significance to the local aborigines and the white settlers alike.
