Travelling Victoria
spring edition 2018

Welcome to another edition of our newsletter "Travelling Victoria". We appreciate your continued support and friendships. It has been a difficult time for Joan who was hospitalized for nearly 3-months late last year with a severe bout of phenomena. She spent 6-weeks in intensive care, in the Shepparton Hospital and St Vincent's in the City. Then in May she got crook again and spent 3-weeks back in hospital with another bout of the dreaded phenomena. She is up and about now and getting on with things, thank goodness. We may have to consider heading north to sunny Queensland for future winters. Hence I have been pretty slack keeping in touch with all our valued clients like yourself. Thanks for your continued support, greatly appreciated.

Apart from all that, we have been quite busy over the past 12-months with plenty of canoeing on the Goulburn and Murray Rivers. We have a good number of schools which now utilize our services with canoeing and camping excursions. We also had 4-flights from Shepparton to Birdsville and Lake Eyre. This was our 21st year running the Flight to Eyre and this year was the driest I have ever seen the outback. However, Lake Eyre had water in it with hundreds of pelicans nesting along the northern shores. Truly an amazing sight.
