Travelling Victoria
Spring edition 2017

Welcome to another bulletin which we hope you will enjoy and perhaps get some motivation to venture out into the country and experience the pristine environs. We recently conducted our 21st flight tour from Shepparton to Ceduna and onto the Head of Bight to see all the whales. This was one of the best trips with plenty of beautiful scenery and nearly 100 whales with their young at the Bight. There was one white calf and we just couldn't take our eyes off this little fellow with all his antics. The whales are easily seen from a viewing platform which is world class. Terrific tour, more details later in this newsletter.

The lucky winner from the last competition is Eric Brewiss from Belmont in Geelong, he knew that a man named Armstrong walked on the moon on July 20, 1969. I can remember watching it on black and white T.V. There will be another chance to win the very popular competition later in the newsletter.

Flight to the Whales

Next flight from Shepparton is September 20-22, 2017. There are seats available and this could be the last opportunity to see all the whales this year. We are also prepared to offer discount so make inquiries now by phoning Rob on 0428 585 227 or return email for more details and bookings. This is a 3-day tour which will see the Flinders Ranges, Grampians, Adelaide and the spectacular cliffs on the Great Australian Bight. Phone now, you will be glad you did.

Q. Which is further north, Ceduna or Newcastle?

Footy in the Bush

In the last newsletter we mentioned the incredible run of wins that Kyabram are enjoying in the strong Goulburn Valley Football/Netball League. It now is over 40-straight wins which is a record in this league. Had some interesting emails, one from Davo from Avoca who claims Navarre had not lost a match for a few seasons, but I am still waiting for proof. Dunkeld in the Mininera League didn't win a match for 3-seasons once, according to a very one eyed Willaura supporter who shall remain nameless. Anyway, good old Kyabram, their coach Paul Newman has not coached a loosing side yet.

Canoes on the Goulburn

Spring is just around the corner, and this is a great time to be out on the rivers. All the birds are nesting including the eagles, I noticed them patching up their nest the other day. Eagles mate for life and use the same nest year after year. They only breed in a good season, or when they think it will a good year. The river is flowing well and inviting. We have canoeing and kayaking along much of the Goulburn and Murray Rivers, and we look forward to your further inquiry and booking. We are going for a record number of paddlers this year, so please come and help us out.
