Does two years in a row make this an annual lab event - the day of kayaking on the Kangaroo River (about 2 h south of Sydney)? Well, either way, it was a most enjoyable day. It is very calming to float down silently down the river (well, except for the sound of Wendy issuing commands to her paddler, that is) and observe the river life.

The company that we have done this with both times also does an overnight option, where you can camp in between two fairly full days. I think we are keen to give that a go next time - there is a bit of gorge action in that trip i seem to remember the guy saying...
