Tanjil River Canoe Trip

I was forgetting it was a long weekend…the next hot day will be more suitable for us: fewer people about! Some beautiful campsites on the Tanjil off Rowley’s Hill Road via Hill End (a lovely 2WD drive), eg near the gauging station (launch here) just below the bridge, (or for those with a 4WD – though the track is good enough for eg Subarus) off ‘Steve’s Track’ (Yes!) which runs off Rowley’s Hill Rd just after it diverges from Russell Creek Rd (which is the turn-off you should look for just before Hill End). This is where you would get out. I’d say 1 ½-2 hour trip. Maps: Noojee South T8122-3-S and Trafalgar North T8121-4-N and Avenza PDF Maps App. Looks canoeable to me:
