Lake Yarrunga is near Kangaroo Valley in the southern highlands of NSW. It is arguably the most spectacular flat-water paddle near Sydney and is regarded as one of the best flatwater paddles in the world. The lake consists of two flooded river valleys (Kangaroo and Shoalhaven Rivers) and is approximately 35km of flat water held by Tallowa Dam which is roughly mid-way between the two ends. The Shoalhaven arm of the lake is an enclosed gorge with 400m high sandstone cliffs on each side. The lake is within Morton National Park. There is easy vehicle access and boat entry/exit at the Bendeela Camping and Picnic Ground and at Tallowa Dam. Away from these locations the lake is remote wilderness. Access to the Shoalhaven arm is only possible by boat.
Arrangements for the weekend will be flexible to allow people with different capabilities to participate. This will include a single or two-night option. Single night paddlers must be able to paddle 15km per day but may extend this via optional excursions. Two-night paddlers must be able to paddle 25km. On the third day two-night paddlers will paddle 34km (although there is a possible option to reduce this if they can arrange a car shuttle with a single night paddler).
To participate in this trip you must be self-sufficient in terms of equipment and supplies. You will need to take camping equipment that can be stored in drybags inside your boat or on its deck. You will need to take sufficient food and water with you or have a suitable water filtration system.
