Travelling Victoria
Vol: 177 september 2014

Thanks once again for opening this newsletter, we hope you enjoy the contents and perhaps gain some motivation for your next venture out into the Regional Areas of our State and beyond.  With good weather on the way, now is a great time to plan your canoeing and camping adventure on our Northern Rivers, such as the Murray and Goulburn.  After a very slow and cold winter, we are open and looking for business with canoeing, camping, fishing and coach tours.

The Flight Tour to Ceduna and onto the Head of Bight was very spectacular. The wild flowers are coming out in bloom along the Nullarbor and on the coast which is an added bonus with all the whales.  This year there are well over 100-beautiful Southern Right Whales in at the peaceful waters at the Bight.  The young are growing bigger every day and more playful.  We saw one active calf jumping right out of the water creating much joy among the people looking on.  Next tour with vacancies is August 25-27. Book now .

The lucky winner of last month’s competition is Barry Young from Thurgoona (near Albury), Barry knew that a group of whales is a pod.  There will be a further chance to win later in this newsletter.


We are pleased and  proud to announce that River Country Adventours now have canoeing hire and safaris along the serene Edward River and other waters in Southern New South Wales.  This will be run by Scott & Debbie Fullerton 03. 5884 6878  M. 0427 823 373.  The Edward is one of few rivers in the world that flows away from a major river.  It comes out of the Murray near Picnic Point and gently flows north through Deniliquin and finally re-joins the Murray upstream from Swan Hill. The business will be known as Edward RIVER Adventours and can be checked out on Face Book under this name.  We certainly wish Scott and Debbie well in this new and exciting venture.  Deniliquin is a must see destination with plenty of history, a fantastic council and a terrific river for canoeing.  It also has a well equipped air-port and some of our outback flight tours can take off from here.  Plenty of quality accommodation in town and if you want any further information please contact Scott or Debbie on the numbers shown above.  Scott and Debbie are locals and have a great affiliation  for the river and environs, you will be in good hands with these two lovely people.

Canoes on the Goulburn.

We have canoeing safaris always available along many sections of the ancient river.  From the faster water upstream from Seymour to the gentle flows around Nagambie there is a part of the river just for you.  Further downstream from Shepparton we have our camping spots in the Wyuna/Yambuna section.  This area is full of birds and other wildlife such as kangaroos, platypuses and wedge tailed eagles.  This is also a good place to camp with safe sites and we bring portable industrial toilets to the river for you convenience.

After a very slow winter. we are open and looking for your business and support.  if you have been before you know how good it is and if you haven’t yet made it to the river, book in now, you will make our day and you will have a ball!  We have set our target of getting at least 100-bookings and enquires from this newsletter, thanks for your support.

Q. What river flows through Deniliquin?

Thought for the Day.

When seeking advice you usually get what you didn’t want to hear and the tree of life has many branches, but from where I look it seems completely rooted.
