Travelling Victoria
Vol: 187 august 2015


Thank you all once again for your fabulous support and kind remarks about our business and how we conduct it, greatly appreciated.  Just back from our first tour to Ceduna and all the whales are in at the Head of Bight.  A couple of the young Southern Right whales put on a fantastic show, jumping out of the water and one even landed on mum’s back, much to the delight of all the people lucky enough to be there at the time.  This is a terrific tour and we have another one going just before the AFL Grand Final in September, 2015. There are still vacancies.  For more information and bookings contact Rob either by email or phone 0428 585 227.
 
The Lucky winner from last month’s competition is Chris Johnston from Newstead, Chris has won a $200.00 gift voucher for any canoeing and camping adventure on the Lower Goulburn.  Chris knew that Ceduna is further north than Newcastle.  There will be another chance for you to win later in this newsletter.
 

Come canoeing in Cohuna.

Great title, and a terrific thing to do in Cohuna.  Situated between Echuca and Swan Hill on the Murray Valley Highway, the wetlands and the pristine Gunbower Creek awaits exploring, and the best way to see all the birds and this wonderland is from a canoe.  This is another must do activity in Northern Victoria. During the Spring there will be environmental flows throughout the entire wetlands.  Fantastic time to explore these wetland wonders with all the birds, and there is a special offer of only $45.00 per person for a canoeing adventure around Cohuna.   For bookings and more information contact Tanya on 0428 487 823. 
 

Calling all Schools.

River Country Adventours are looking to boost our canoeing, camping and adventure products into the school sector.  We are fully accredited, have working with children certificates as well as other qualifications.  Our knowledge of the bush and rivers in Northern Victoria is of great benefit for the schools planning their students outdoor activities.  Many schools have their own canoes and gear and these schools are welcome in River Country and we can provide guides and information from locals who have a passion for the Australian bush.  So we are ready and awaiting your contact, you and your students will be glad you have.   Contact Rob or Joan at info@adventours.com.au

Q. What river flows through Shepparton?
 

Spring at Last.

After a particularly cold winter, the signs of spring are now in the air.  Birds out along the rivers are nesting including the wedge tail eagles that have taken up residence along the Lower Goulburn River.  These magnificent creatures mate for life and use the same nest each year to rear their young.  Last year the most number of eagles seen on a canoeing safari was 7.  This year with a successful breeding this number will be exceeded.  Now is a good time to book your adventure on the river we have safaris from 1/2 day to full days.  Self guided safaris usually around the 2-3 days however we have had a group once that spent a week on the river.  Then we also have a bush walking group who paddled from Yambuna to Echuca and when we got their vehicles to Moama Beach, they decided that 3-days wasn’t enough, so they paddled on for a couple more days.  Bookings can be made tody by contacting River Country Adventours  M 0428 585 227.
