Murrumbidgee River 2020-2022
Between 1995 and 2008 I paddled the Murrumbidgee River in sections between Jugiong and the Murray River. You can read the detailed account of this journey here.
I have now again paddled much of the river and this is the description. Much of my earlier journey was undertaken during the Millenium Drought with low water levels. During 2020-2022 most of my journey was done at high water levels, about 3-5 metres higher than normal, meaning that most of the sandy beaches were underwater but also that I had no problems with snags.
A summarized account of my journey (Wagga to Hay and Maude to Balranald) is available in the NPA Bulletin, Vol. 59, No. 1, March 2022, pages 12-13
