Hi all,

Am planning a river run from Jugiong to Wagga in a few months, When it starts to warm a bit.

Is there any Weirs in between?

Cheers Wilko

Not a lot of weirs down that way, I'd suggest

www.lpma.nsw.gov.au/__data/assets/pdf_file/0009/99729/Murrumbidgee_web.pdf
or the book "Fishing and Camping Murrumbidgee River - Gundagai to Narrandera"

We did it a couple of years ago. There are no wiers, but two great camps on the northern side of the river between Gundagai and Wagga. From memory, I know that one definitely had a rough boat ramp [may have been called Wantabadgery] and I would think the other one closer to Wagga would as well. The river was still quite high and racing, when we crossed it at Wagga this week. There are lots of wineries also on the northern side of the river just out of Gundagai. Both sides of the river out of Gundagai are nice drives.

Enjoy your travels.

Hi Ian,

This wont happen until conditions are right (prob spring) We should be able to find plenty of campings spots, The beauty of having a boat is you can camp where ever you like, find spot and just pull up, It doesnt have to be a reserve or a normal camping area.

What's your worry about weirs? I think your greatest impediment will be the rapids.

Thanks Peter,

Not too worried about rapids, I've completed dozens of these river runs, did the Meaclay river from up near the styx to the mouth, lots of rapids, Its adds to the excitement.
