There are still quite a few places left on the annual boat trip up Molonglo Reach this Sunday.
The weather is forecast to be clear and sunny, so it should be a great morning out on the water before it gets to hot.
Details are below.

Sunday 14 February - Molonglo Reach Boat Trip

This outing/cruise will be on the upper parts of Lake Burley Griffin (East Basin) and the adjacent Molonglo River Reach, where late summer/early autumn is usually the peak time for nesting, with darters as well as three species of cormorant known to breed there. The area also has a variety of water birds, and a range of land birds can be seen on the banks.

The boat trip will last about 2 hours from 8 am and will cost $20, payable in cash on boarding.  This year we will again be travelling in the electric boat “MV Gull” which can carry around 22 people.  The boat allows both a quiet approach as well as access to areas difficult to get to from the land.  The point of departure will again be from Kingston Harbour using the wharf at the end of Giles Street.  There is plenty of all day free weekend parking close by, particularly in Eastlake Parade.  Alternatively participants can park their cars in the SE corner of the Glass Works/Bus Depot Markets car park, which will involve about a 200 m walk.
