19th to 23rd Jan 2018

Canoe trip article in the Bega Distict news.

In total 34, Scouts, leaders and Venturers from Cobargo, Merimbula, Lones and Canberra spent 5 days on a Canoeing trip from Khancoban to Jingellic. Temperatures ranged from 30 to 43 degrees during the day, so a lot of time was spent in the water. There were 12 Canoes and kayaks, carrying 29 people on the 103km trip down the Murray, supported by a convoy of 4 vehicles and 5 people, including "Captain Cricket" piloting a drone for a unique view of the trip.

Day 1 - Cobargo to Towong

Day 1, we left Cobargo at 8am, and travelled through Kosciusko national park to our campsite for the 1st 3 nights at Towong .  Along the way we stopped at Geehi for a swim and hot dogs for lunch as also at the Murray 2 Power station for a guided tour, and welcome relief from the heat in the air conditioned cafe. While there we made a good dent in their ice-cream, lollies and cold drink supply.
