5th Floatilla Anniversary Paddle 30th Apr 2011

Well what a wonderful wet season we are having.  So much so it is hard to predict what the river will be like but certainly the paddocks at my place are very wet.  There are lots of changes to see in the river because of the recent flooding and see where Main Roads are planning to still build a new bridge across the Mary River just upstream of the Traveston Crossing Bridge. amongst some very unstable river banks. Please RSVP by Wed 27th April in case we have to change our plans because of the weather. Glenda mb 0411443589

The Museum will be a tribute to all the people who worked so hard to overturn the decision to dam the Mary River. Visitors are lead around the walls of the building by following a section of the  rainbow scarf   that was knitted by volunteers during the lengthy campaign (the entire scarf is hundreds of metres long).  These walls become a story-board of the campaign from start to finish, packed full of colourful photos and signs,  crammed with information.  The museum also features a resource area focussed on river education.  read more..
