Expressions of Interest, Gunbower Creek Paddle


Gunbower Creek Paddle,

1-14 September 2019

Echuca to Murrabit (Murray River) via Gunbower Creek

Gerry O’Leary is planning a paddle along the Murray River from Echuca to Murrabit via Gunbower Creek.

Total Paddle distance 250k.

This will be a camping out of Kayaks Trip paddling approximately 30k each day further if the flow is good .

There are at least 4 Weirs to Portage around the longest being 200m more info after my Recon.

Starting at 8AM each morning except for day 1, which will be much earlier to allow for the 1 car shuttle. All cars moved from Echuca to Murrabit drivers then returning by the Cohuna Community Bus.  Cost of Community bus per person dependant on numbers.

There will be 2 resupply locations along the way Cohuna (IGA) and Barham (IGA and Foodworks).

Start with 4 days Food resupply with 2 days at both locations. Plenty of water in the River.

Maps will be sent out later in the mean time look it up on Google maps or Google Earth.

Distance to Echuca 700k. Distance to Murrabit from Echuca by road 110k.

A more detailed itinerary at a later date.

Drive to Echuca 1 day paddle 8 days drive home 1 day. I know that does not add up to 14 all going well home sooner
