About the trip

The date has changed. Trip is full unless you have your own boat.

Who's keen to have an overnight packrafting trip in some of Tassies  best wilderness! The Andrew is a grade 2-3 river that we will be aiming  to paddle in 3 days.

This trip will consist of driving upto Queenstown friday afternoon,  organising a car shuttle to the get out at the end of the Mt McCall  Track (or hiring Roam Wild to pick us up) and then camping somewhere  near the put in (where Kelly Basin Road crosses the Crotty River). We  will spend Saturday morning dragging/floating/carrying our boats to the  start of the Andrew~2.4km then paddling ~12km and camping on the side of  the Andrew. Day 2 will see us complete the Andrew, joining the Franklin  where we will likely camp at Horseshoe Ben's area. We will then finish  the trip Monday with a short paddle and walking out the McCall Track  (350m vertical walk out of the river). The walkout is not long but will  be very steep, hence the packrafts. I expect we will be back in Hobart  in the evening.

Depending on who is keen to come ans the weather we may be able to  squeeze the trip into two days. More details will be shared closer to  the date!

I expect days to be rather long and spare batteries for your  headlamps will be a must! Hopefully we won't need them. Camping under  tarps is the plan.

We also need a few good days of rain to get this trip going so I will be posting updates closer to the date.

Space on this trip will be limited by the number of packrafts  the club owns (4) but we can expand the number of people coming if you  have a personal boat. This trip is sutiable for people who are  experianced in packing light and preferably have some  packrafting/overnighing experiance. A good level of fitness will be  required for the walkout.

We will need atleast two 4WD's so if you can help out please get in touch.

Once you have signed up I will contact you with more details :D
