Islands of the Hawkesbury River - NSWSKC Island Challenge

When: 1 / 2 April 2017

Grades 2 and 3. Spaces limited.

This is a great opportunity for those that have not had a chance to participate on any of the Island Challenge trips – come along and tick off a whole bunch in one foul swoop.

We will be launching from Parsley Bay (Brooklyn) on both days and staying Saturday night at a club member’s house. Some will be able to sleep inside, others will be able to pitch tents in the yard.

We plan to head upstream on the Saturday and pick off quite a number of islands including Spectacle, Snake, Peat, Milsons, Bar Islands, maybe also Friendly island if the tide is working well.

 On Sunday we will circumnavigate Dangar island before heading out into Broken Bay to circle Lion Island.

Kayaks and kit to Grade 3, please.  You’ll need to be self-sufficient in terms of food, clothing, safety kit, etc. Overnight camping gear and Saturday night dinner can be left in the car

Your trip leader will be Caoimhin Ardren. If we have high demand, there is another leader offering to assist – so if the trip is showing as Full – send me an email to put you on the wait list [cardren at]
