Located 80 km north west of Canberra, Wee Jasper (pop 100) boasts a variety of attractions, including camping and recreational reserves – perfect of course for adventurers and outdoor people wanting to explore nearby caves such as Careys Caves (which has seven chambers of crystal formation) – www.weejaspercaves.com/. Set among a mix of broad acre and grazing properties, Wee Jasper’s other attractions include heritage-listed sites such as the Wee Jasper Bridge over the Goodradigbee River. Apart from camping, visitors may want to stay at the circa 1908 Cooradigbee Homestead B&B (www.weejasper.com.au;  Tel: 02-6227 9634) on 7,500 acres of grazing and bush lands. The homestead offers accommodation options for weekends, holidays, weddings, conferences and other events, and occasionally has a pop-up cafe. But guests can always sample fine cuisine at the homestead’s Duck’nFishes Bar and Café or relax on the verandah, looking out onto peaceful gardens and flocks of grazing sheep.
