I have just joined the forum.
I do a lot of kayaking.
But my best ever holiday was rafting the Franklin with World Expeditions in Dec - Jan 1993 - 94. An eleven day rafting trip that included a walk to Frenchmans Cap. My brother in law that was and still is in charge of the release of water from the hydro said that the Frankling came up to 9m whilst we were on it. We were apparently the only tour to make it out. Lots of portages and big water. Others had to walk or be choppered out. Even made the local news.
I am looking at getting a packraft and get into it. Also try to get my kids involved. Kayaking is too sedate. I am craving some excitement as I get older.
I am wondering if anyone does any trips near the Hunter Valley / Newcastle, or knows of any decent water to paddle? I know there is some up Barrington Tops but need some direction as to places to put in and get out.
Thanks in advance.
