SNOWY RIVER RUNS FREE - Trip report from Maclaughlin to Halfway Flat

From 12 – 14 October 2011 Kevein Songberg and Tim Sindle from the Rivers Canoe Club of NSW joined experienced whitewater rafters Bruce Baxter, Jack Hodge and a photo journalist to paddle the Snowy River from Maclaughlin R junction to Halfway Flat at The Barry Way.  The group was joined at Duncans firetrail by Jiri and Cat Svec and Kevin songberg has prepared a report and maps on their observations of willows, blackberries, feral and native animals, debris, Corrowong Falls, and Snowy Falls. It also provides comment and images on recreational value and caution for this section of the river. This contribution is aimed to provide feedback from us as recreational river users to Federal, State, Local and Community organisations to assist with restoration and future preservation of the Snowy River.
