On Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th December, Members of the GLCBC completed part two of our three rivers exploration; and visited the Port of Bairnsdale on the Mitchell River.

Unfortunately the weather forecast for the Saturday warned of pending Gale force winds, and as such many members wisely chose the safer option and met other club members at the Port of Bairnsdale by car.
A small number of members did however make the journey across Lake King early in the morning and enjoyed a very pleasant trip with smooth seas, well before the strong winds that arrived later in the afternoon.
Once the GLCBC members entered the magnificent silt jetties on the lower Mitchell River, a pleasant journey passing the Cliff faces and other picturesque scenery was experienced until our destination was reached.
As GLCBC members and boats arrived at the port of Bairnsdale, other members of the club arrived by car and all enjoyed a few refreshments, snacks and a BBQ dinner utilizing the parkland facilities.
The following morning many members and boats chose to head off early and make way back down the Mitchell River to avoid another round of strong winds forecast for later in the day. As a result, the Mitchell River provided members with an absolutely beautiful vista showing off some amazing early morning sunlight and reflection from the wilderness and wildlife.
