[QLD] Mary River Gympie Area

Postby Cresta57 » Fri Aug 11, 2017 11:07 pm

Gympie Regional Council asked for contributions to a canoe & kayak strategy for the Mary River a couple of years ago. The final report is here https://www.gympie.qld.gov.au/documents ... ratgey.pdf
Work has begun with 4 kayak access points constructed already and 4 more to come in the next few months. Below is a link to the the recently completed work on the access point at Kidd Bridge in the centre of Gympie.

Wow. A very comprehensive report. Pity NSW gov and/or councils didn't do the same for some of our rivers, Nepean of course.

good news for kayaks and canoes the one next to Normandy bridge is finished too However as soon as Mary river comes in flood again, they'll be washed away, enjoy them while you can don't leave rubbish behind

The Kidd bridge one looks quite well protected, of course if substantial tree/debris builds up on the upper section it will easily buckle. The plan is to eventually have camping spots about a day's paddle from each other. I'm looking forward to the rest I've paddled quite a few isolated spots and the abundance of wildlife is astounding, never mind the Bass, Saratoga, Sooty Grunter & the Mary River Cod [strict no take species but nobody told the cod not to chase the Bass lures]

A trip on the Mary camping over night is a journey for mind body and soul and then there is the fishing too
