Monday 16 October – Monday 23 October Canoe the Shoalhaven River Gorge, Nerriga to Tallowa Dam

This is possibly the most scenic whitewater canoe trip in Australia.

Two days of driving, 960km. Strenuous day carrying canoes and gear down steep 300m drop, no tracks (up to 4 trips). Eight days canoeing grade 1 + 2 rapids. A couple of grade 3 which are easily roped. Five hour car shuffle at the end. Byo suitable kayak or canoe, waterproof bags, camping gear, food etc. You might have to borrow or buy a second hand canoe . Hobie kayaks are not suitable for this trip. There are accounts of doing similar trips on the Shoalhaven on pack rafts. Michael has done this trip 7 times with people who have had little or no experience. The last time in 1980 read the account here for an overview. http://puggle.byethost14.com/canoeshoalhaven80.pdf  The canoeing is relaxed, exciting and easy. It is graded hard because of its length and the difficult walk in with gear.

Limit: 7 participants (Members only). There will be an overnight white water ‘shakedown’ preparation trip for participants on the Nymboida River before the Shoalhaven. Trip is dependent on river height. Grade: Hard.
