Hello COG members and chat line subscribers, there are still quite a few seats left on the boat for this annual trip (since 2003!), for which details are below.


The forecast is very good, sunny with light winds, so if you are interested in a very pleasant early morning on the lake and river please contact me by return e-mail.

Sunday 12 February 2023 - Molonglo Reach Boat Trip

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 there.  The area also has a variety of water birds, 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 E-mail on – please include your mobile and your emergency contact name and number.  There will be a maximum of 20 passengers.
