Mother's Day Overnight Canoe Adventure: Shoalhaven Gorge
Sat., 13/05/2017, 7:45 am – Sun., 14/05/2017, 2:00 pm AEST
This is one of our ultimate adventures. Join us for a canoe up into the stunning Shoalhaven Gorge. We pack our camping gear into the canoes to spend the night by the river, relax around the fire and feel totally away from it all.
Your Leader will ensure a safe, fun filled adventure choosing the pase that will best suit the group and the weather conditions for the weekend.
Note: This is a women's only event.
We are meeting at the Base House 'NOT THE SHOP' (2210 Moss Vale Rd Barrengarry 2577) in Kangaroo Valley at 7.45am sharp. We will be organsing to leave our cars at the Base House and only take our camping gear. From here at 8am we are taking a twenty-minute shuttle to Tallowa Dam, then a 3 hour paddle into the spectacular Shoalhaven Gorge which is recognised as one of the most scenic flat water paddles in Australia, especially after rain with many waterfalls coming over the majestic sandstone cliffs.
We will be camping at one of the Fossickers Flat area's by the river to enjoy the peace, no roads, no powerboats, just the noise of the birds to wake you up in the morning.
Wake up by the river and enjoy a yummy outdoors breakfast and a swim. Return paddle to Tallowa Dam. We will allow 3 hours to enjoy lunch on the banks along the way. We will meet the shuttle for the return back to our cars at 2pm.
