Travelling Victoria
Vol: 149 march 2012

Welcome once again to another edition of "Travelling Victoria" being sent far and wide to over 3000 clients and supporters of River Country Adventours. We have had a terrific summer with the canoeing and are completely booked out for the Labour Day Long Weekend in March, but we have vacancies for Easter, which is in early April this year. Easter is usually a good time on the river, a bit cooler and we may be able to have campfires at the camps along the Lower Goulburn. We welcome your enquiry into canoeing on the Goulburn.

The lucky winner from last month's competition is Clare Masovic. Clare, who comes from Mt Martha has won a 'gift voucher' from River Country Adventours to the value of $200.00 for any canoeing adventure on the Lower Goulburn National Park. The collective word for a group of penguins is a colony, rookery, raft, waddle or crèche. Thanks for the record number of entries, and there is another chance to win later in this newsletter.

Bridge to Bridge.

This a very popular two day canoeing safari on the Lower Goulburn River. If you have your own camping gear and a good sense of adventure this could be what you are looking for. It is around 30-km from Mc Coy's Bridge at Kotupna to Yambuna Bridge and the campsite is situated at the half way mark. The first day we drive you upstream and get you paddling back to your camp. The next day you paddle off once again downstream and we'll be waiting at Yambuna for you to arrive and then drive you back to the camp where you car is safely parked and you can head for home or stay another night with all the birds out in the Australian bush. We provide an industrial portable toilet, water and fishing gear (if required). The cost is $155.00 per person with kids under 12 years free. For more information and bookings for this great product contact Rob on 0428 585 227 anytime.


As from April 1, 2012 catering on day safaris and the "Adventurous Getaways" will be removed. This decision is made as we are steadily getting busier and to much time and energy is being put into catering without any reward. The cost of both products remain the same at $88.00 and $200.00 respectively and if catering is required an extra $15.00 can be added on. We trust this does not cause any inconvenience and you understand our situation. Another major factor we had to consider is local council bi-laws on catering etc.


As mentioned last month, River Country Adventours are now on facebook, thanks to Caroline who has placed some fantastic photos of Lake Eyre and canoeing on the Goulburn for all to see. The best way to get to the site is to log on to our website- and then click on the facebook icon.

It would terrific if you could place a comment and become a good friend of River Country Adventours. Looking forward to hearing from you.


Here is your opportunity to win a $200.00 'gift voucher' for any canoeing adventure on the beautiful Lower Goulburn River. All you need to do is correctly answer the question, all correct entries will be acknowledged and placed in an old hat for the draw towards the end of March.
Have a go, your luck might be in today.
Q. What is the collective term for a group of sparrows?

Heavy Rainfall.

Today is March 1, and the skies have opened up and dropped almost 100-ml on us. This is on top of 88-ml the other day. All canoeing and camping has been cancelled this weekend and we will monitor the situation early in week to ascertain if all the bookings over the Labour Day Long Weekend. We have a record number of bookings for this weekend and it will be such a shame to have to cancel due to the possible floods in our northern rivers. If you are one of the 64 people booked in for various activities it may be prudent to contact us with the view of re-bookings a bit further down the track, when things return to normal.
