Members of the GLCBC have conducted an overnight boat trip and explored the upstream region of the majestic Nicholson River as part 1 of our "3 Rivers exploration series" on Saturday 26th and Sunday 27th of November 2016.
A combination of motor cruisers, kayaks and a few inflatable tenders were used to ferry GLCBC members and guests under the very low Nicholson River bridge whilst larger boats remained at the Nicholson jetty facilities in Nicholson.
Occupants of the larger boats and those who arrived by car for a day trip; accompanied the crew of other member’s boats who were able to squeeze under the bridge.
As a group, members and boats headed upstream under the old railway bridge, past the car bodies cliff face and then slowly cruising towards the Nicholson river backwater whilst passing some beautiful landscapes along the way.
Members boats then completed a raft up at the base of one of the many cliff faces on the river for a few hours and enjoyed a BBQ lunch, some nibbles and a glass of red whilst admiring the scenery.
After lunch, the raft up separated and member’s boats disembarked back down stream towards the township of Nicholson, where all members returned to their boats and continued socialising on the jetty into the evening before retiring for the night.
The following morning blessed our group with calm seas and sunshine, a few of the members then headed towards Paynesville for morning coffee and morning tea.
All in all, a nice relaxing weekend was had by all, and the GLCBC looks forwards to the next installment of our "3 Rivers exploration series" the Mitchell River on December 17th and 18th, See you there!
