DATES: February 2020.
Arrive: Thursday 20th
Paddle: Friday to Thursday

COORDINATORS: Margaret and Derek Heap.
It has heavy bookings over weekends but still has 7 Villas available for our proposed dates. There is no problem with camp sites.

 

Proposed paddles include, Bonfield Creek, Corindi River,
Kalang River, Bellinger River, Pine Creek, Coff’s Creek and possibly Boambee Creek.
That will give a total of 7 paddles. More than enough.

INTRODUCTION

The May 2020 camp is to be held in South Eastern NSW next year.
In view of the distance and time to get there, we have decided to make it worthwhile with a minimum of 12 paddles and a further 3 if sufficient interest is indicated.
The camp will run from 30th APRIL 2020 to 18th MAY if the full program is undertaken or finish on 15th May if Mallacoota is not included.
Given it will take 2 to 3 Days travelling each way, it covers 3 weeks so I wish to get the dates out now so all are aware and can plan their diary.
The program attached is tentative and the paddles are subject to change. However nearly all are in National Parks or Forestry and include Dam, Lake, River, Creek, Bay and Open Water if conditions permit.
Ample alternate paddles exist to cover contingencies.
I believe these are interesting and beautiful paddles and there is something for everyone. There is a day off after each 3 paddle set and all parks are dog friendly. I hope it gets you as excited as I am.
Bruce.
