Travelling Victoria
Vol: 201 Autumn edition 2017

A fair bit of water under the bridges since our last newsletter, from now on the newsletter will be quarterly, or sooner if there is a special deal to broadcast throughout our data base. Anyway the river is flowing well and another environmental flow will come down the Lower Goulburn starting at the end of February and finishing up later in March. This extra water will stimulate the plant growth along the banks and help with Yellow belly (Golden Perch) breeding. It is always great on the river canoeing when the river is full, plenty of birds and brings the platypuses out to play. In fact just recently platypuses have been sighted near Yambuna on the Lower Goulburn River. So from now on is a good time to visit the Lower Goulburn and we look forward to your enquiries and bookings. We have plenty of vacancies over Easter at this time, so if your thinking about some fun in the bush, contact us now, phone Rob 0428 585 227.

The lucky winner from the last newsletter is Shirley Powell from Frankston, there will be a further chance to win a $200.00 gift voucher for any adventure on the Goulburn later in this newsletter.

Lake Eyre

Following recent local rain and now the monsoons hitting Northern Australia, huge Lake Eyre will be well worth a look again this year. The birds, mainly pelicans, are there now getting ready to breed as the water comes down into the huge lake. We would go now but it is too hot, up to 50. We have set our first flight from Shepparton to Birdsville and Lake Eyre for April 6-7, 2017.

For further information and bookings for this once in a life time special opportunity just contact us here at River Country Adventours via email of phone Rob on 0428 585 227. We have been flying people to Lake Eyre since 1997, and our next flight will be number 113.

Schools

We have plenty of canoes and kayaks to teach students the skills in canoeing and kayaking. A good region is Nagambie, easy access to river and very safe. Nagambie is only 90-minutes out of the City and we welcome your schools contact. With top quality gear and qualified guides, contact us for further details.
