The Melbourne Bushies - Fifty years along the track (1940-90)

The Mitchell River was the scene of weekend lilo trips in 1982, 1985 and 1986. The river here is shallow, slow flowing and warm with farm paddocks and willow trees on the banks. Then the river leaves the farm-land and twists among the mountains. There were lots of small rapids, and a number of medium rapids, some swimming pools and a few sandy beaches.

A unique mode of travel in a uniquely beautiful place. Liloing through a white granite gorge on the Upper Kowmung River, New South Wales. Club trip, Christmas 1986.
