We will be organsing to leave our cars at the Base House and only take our camping gear. From here at 10am 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 stop on the way to have morning tea by the river and take our time.
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.
At night we have a fire, some wine and cook up a healthy meal.
* Please pack your own lunch for Sunday 20th May. Monique will provide monring tea for the group + Tea and Coffee.
Day 2 Monday 21st May:
Wake up by the river and enjoy a yummy outdoors breakfast and a swim (if you are brave because it is cold!). Return paddle to Tallowa Dam. We will allow 3 hours to enjoy moring tea on the banks along the way. We will meet the shuttle for the return back to our cars at 2pm.
The Hume Highway (m5) is much more direct than the coast road. Follow these directions and it will take you 2 hours to get here. Come down the Hume highway towards Canberra, Take the Mittagong exit .Go to Bowral. From Bowral follow the signs to Nowra (do not go to moss vale). This is the Sheepwash Road. This road will take you past Fitzroy falls. You will come down Barrengarry Mountain. Once you are at the bottom of the mountain you will see us 3 klms on the left. Look for the big Kangaroo Valley Safaris sign at our gate. If you get to Hampden Bridge you have gone 1.5 klm too far.
