Saturday 19th March: Leave Albury early and drive to our starting point at Bringenbrong Bridge on the Murray River Road Tintaldra.  From here we will spend the day paddling leisurely downstream to the Clearwater by The Upper Murray Caravan Park, where we will be spending the night. Dinner will be at the Tintaldra Pub, which I will prebook for the group.

Sunday 20th March: Will be a shorter day on the river.  After brekky, pack up and short car shuffle we will continue downstream.  Our finishing point will be decided closer to the time and dependent on access.  But once finished we will have lunch before heading home.

You will need to book your own accomodation for Saturday night at Clearwater by The Upper Murray Caravan Park. Camper vans and trailers are most welcome.

If you are not going to paddle you have the option of either leaving Albury in the morning with the paddlers and making the most of your time in camp on the river (and maybe even being a support vehicle and helping out getting all vehicles to camp) OR making your own way to camp sometime during the day.

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.

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

It would be really good to get some non paddlers who just want to come and have a camp by the river and would be happy to share pulling the canoe trailer and driving cars to/from our basecamp. Even though it’s not far this would save the car shuffles.
