            This book has changed my life.
            As a uni student on a budget, and a nature lover, this book gives me information on all the most beautiful swimming spots within three hours of my home city, Sydney.
            I've lived here for 25 years and I would never have known about 3/4 of these places nor how to find them. My hope is that people who find and share these places will inspire others to respect the culture of wild swimming and encourage people and governments to protect these places and improve water quality for now and future generations.
