Molonglo Reach boat trip

Sun 13 February 2022 08:00am

Jack Holland

Description:  This outing/cruise will be on the upper parts of Lake Burley Griffin (East Basin) and the adjacent Molonglo Reach, where late summer/early autumn is historically the peak time for breeding of darters as well as three species of cormorant.  The area also has a variety of waterbirds, and a range of land birds can be seen on the banks.

We will again be travelling in the electric boat “MV Gull” which allows both a quiet approach as well as access to areas difficult to get to from the land.

Meeting time:  The boat will depart at 8:00 am and the trip will last about 2 hours and will cost $20, payable in cash on boarding.

Meeting place:  Kingston Boat Harbour at Trevillian Quay.  Participants will need to leave their cars in Eastlake Parade, where there is free all-day weekend street parking, or in the Glass Works/Bus Depot Markets car park and walk across Eastlake Parade and down Trevillian Quay.  Once you have crossed the canal keep going straight ahead for around 50 m till you reach a gap between the buildings.  Turn right and Wharf 6 and the boat should be clearly visible after 20 m once when you reach the harbour.

Name of leader and contact details:  To participate, please contact Jack Holland by email on – please include your name and mobile number, and an emergency contact name and number.  A maximum of 20 passengers will be allowed by the current COVID-19 restrictions, so please book early.
