Trac­ing the Mur­ray

Australian Geographic - - Your Society -

On 3 March, Matty Hunter hopes to pad­dle his cus­tom-made ca­noe (with four bladed pad­dle wheels on each side) into the mouth of the mighty Mur­ray River in Goolwa, SA. His ex­pe­di­tion be­gan on 12 De­cem­ber, 2017, when Matty was he­li­coptered to the be­gin­ning of the Mur­ray River in the Aus­tralian Alps, where it is barely a trickle. Com­bin­ing hik­ing, white­wa­ter raft­ing and ca­noe­ing, Matty’s ad­ven­ture may well be the first of its kind, fol­low­ing the river’s en­tire 2500km length from the source to the mouth of Aus­tralia’s long­est wa­ter­way.
