Travelling Victoria
Vol: 159 march 2013

Thanks for opening this newsletter, and we hope you continue to enjoy the contents and perhaps get some motivation for your next venture out into the great outdoors of State and beyond. The autumn is a good time to visit the regional places in Victoria, not quite so hot and plenty to do and see. We also appreciate all the positive feed back we have been getting on our products and services. We are in the people industry and it is always good to know that you are appreciated, thank you.

The lucky winner of last month’s competition is Snow and Verna Campbell from Miners Rest, which is down Ballarat way. The correct answer is 1130 in Broken Hill when it is midday in Sydney. Broken Hill takes on Central time or South Australian. There will be another chance to win later in this newsletter.

Lake Eyre.

Lake Eyre is currently dry and is the largest salt pan in the world. However, with all this rain falling up north, some water may reach the basin and bring with it an abundance of birdlife. We have arranged over 100 flight tours to Lake Eyre and Birdsville over the past 4-years and would love to go again, and if you want more information please do not hesitate in contacting us.

Whale Tours.

The annual arrival of up to 100 Southern Right whales will happen again at the Head of Bight (near Ceduna S.A) from June. The beautiful mammals slowly swim from the Antarctic waters to the warmer waters along the southern Australian coast to give birth. The mothers come in close to the cliffs and the males stay well out to sea. To see these gentle creatures feeding their young is a joy. We will be running these tours for sure during the winter, and if you require further information, please let us know.


Here is your chance to win a $200.00 ‘gift voucher 'from River Country Adventours for any canoeing/camping adventure on the Lower Goulburn River. All correct entries will be acknowledged and placed in a hat for the draw after Easter. Have a go, you never know your luck today.
