NSW, Goolang Ck

Goolang Ck is where the outflow from the local hydro station goes (after taking water from the Nymboida Rv) and is the site for the Nymboida Canoe Centre, some 4km (as the crow flies) from us… We have been getting fairly heavy rain (150mm in 3 days). Oddly, they close the inlets for the hydro station (and thus no extra water goes into Goolang Ck) when the Nymboida Rv is either too low OR too high. Apparently at the moment it is too high, so there was only minimal inflow from the hydro power station but that’s okay as this was only our second time packrafting, it allowed us to get some more experience before there is too much water in the creek !! There are so many creeks and rivers here to explore in the rafts !!! Lucky though, with brown flood water, no one can see if I shi_t myself !

The canoe centre has free PFD (lifejacket) and Helmet hire for locals (no banjos, unfortunately !), so we took advantage and put them on, just in case !
