Bash Course Description: You enter the Goulburn River from the small reserve at Keresdale. There is a good stretch of water above the start line for participants to warm up. This section is graded as grade 1. The river speed and volume varies greatly depending on the volume of water released from the Eildon Pondage. The river is fast flowing water and willows trees over hang the river edge at numerous points. Paddle times will vary from 30 minutes to 45mins
At completion of the bash and morning tea the River Trip will commence.
