ExplorOz Sponsors Murray River Adventurer
The Great Big Paddle is the latest adventure project for British chap Dave Cornthwaite, who is one of our international Members. Dave is paddling 9000 miles in two years to raise funds for the AV Foundation, and along the way he hopes to actively encourage and inspire people to take up a sporting hobby and care for the environments in which they play, train and explore. You may remember Dave a few years back when he skateboarded across the Nullarbor! The Australian leg of his latest adventure is currently underway - a kayak paddle along the length of Australia's longest river, The Murray from source to sea. Follow his adventurous journey via his ExplorOz blog, containing regular updates. These also contain links to many hours of YouTube documentary updates, which are highly recommended viewing! (see if you can spot the ExplorOz sticker!). ExplorOz has sponsored Dave by providing numerous bits of specialised equipment to help support the
logistics of his journey, including all the Murray River Access Maps, waterproof map case, Nalgene Storage Jars, Trek & Travel Washes,
Shotz Sports Bars, Gels and Electroylyte Tablets, ExplorOz branded clothing and stickers, plus a trash sack, dry sacks, a trekking umbrella, pillow, a pocket towel, and see pouch. Now that's doing it the ExplorOz way!
New Fishing Regulations in WAIf you live outside of WA you may not be aware of new fishing regulation changes, which have now come into effect. If you're travelling here and intend to do a spot of fishing, from shore or boat, you'll need to know the new rules. Essentially, there is a total ban on the take of ‘high risk’ demersal fish
by recreational fishers in the West Coast Bioregion from 15 October to 15 December, inclusive. Our WA Fishing Rules article explains all you need to know.
