Due to the success of our last canoe weekend on the Mitta Mitta River, our next 2 days of canoeing will also be on the Mitta Mitta River, its just so pretty and peaceful.  Over these 2 days we will  paddle  a different section of the river  than last year. Day 1 will start at The Witches Garden and finish in Eskdale, and day 2  will likely be from Pigs Point to an access point on Lake Hume, but this will be decided closer to the date.  We’ll be based at Eskdale Caravan Park and each day travel/car shuffle to the start/finish.  For our past canoeing weekends, most people have camped on the Friday night to avoid an early start from Albury on the Saturday morning, but that’s totally up to you.

Double canoes will be hired from the Canoe Guy- approx. $100 per canoe/$50 per person, this includes pfd’s and paddles. Paddlers must be able to swim 25m and be confident in the river.  There will also be a cost TBA to cover getting the canoes up there.

Everyone will need to make their own bookings at Eskdale Caravan Park, 0438645846. 

Dinner Saturday night will be at Eskdale Pub, and I will book for the group. Please let me know if you don’t want to be included.

Please note the early book by date as we need to book canoes with Dave the Canoe Guy in advance.
