Mark G.
Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Walk | A bushwalk of any kind short or long(Cancelled) If you want the ultimate river trip you simply can't go past the mighty Morong Deep! This is an incredibly beautiful section of the upper Kowmung River populated by numerous cascades, cool refreshing giant swimming pools and slabs of pink granite which is perfect for scrambling over, sunbaking on and allowing perfect grip as you explore your way down the river. In short, having the time of your life! Add to this the real chance of bagging a wild trout and some lovely campsites and you have all the attributes for an amazing experience worthy of saluting the Australia Day weekend in style! The walk involves walking down into the deep via Megalith ridge,establishing a basecamp at a loverly grassy campsite then exploring with day packs the Kowmung river upstream into the Morong Deep and downstream too which has a completely different character. Lots of rock scrambling.

1 Feb, Sat Kayaking Port Davey/Bathurst Harbour
Branch
jcrocker
Camp | An activity that involves an overnight stay, usually in a tent.Paddle | A canoe or kayak tripExpressions of interest are sought for a kayaking trip of about a week's duration in Port Davey/Bathurst Harbour in SW Tasmania for February or March 2020. The plan would be to fly from Hobart to Melaleuca, and a folding kayak, suitable for air transport, would be an advantage. It is possible to take a conventional kayak into Port Davey on a charter boat, but the trip around the southern capes of Tasmania is recommended only for those with good sea legs. A number of shops in Australia sell folding kayaks, and hire arrangements may be possible. Once there, the plan would be to explore as much of the area as the weather conditions permit. February and March are the least windy months, but very strong winds may occur at any time. However, the area has many sheltered inlets and it should usually be possible to find some protected water to paddle. View
