A day trip down the Shoalhaven Gorge, probably from Bungonia to Badgery's Crossing. This will mean an early start from Sydney and a late return. The Shoalhaven is currently running at 1.60, which is an exciting level, but will drop by Saturday. I will cancel the trip if it looks like it will go below 1.20. We will need at least one more car to do the car shuffle - 2WD is fine.

You will need:
*a packraft or a decent Intex boat. No pool toys :-)
*canoe paddle
*PFD (life jacket)
*a wetsuit and wet footwear
*canoe/climbing/bike helmet
*Dry Bags

You MUST be a competent swimmer (e.g. Confident in the surf)

Clark Rubber and BCF sell Intex boats and cheap paddles

Coming along to walk up and down to the gorge is fine - Bungonia is great walking - and if some one with a drivers licence wanted to do that we could manage with one car.
