You will travel through remote gorges and negotiate challenging rapids and portages and even hike past Corrowong Falls to marvel at the rugged Hanging Rock formations. Over 10 breathtakening days you will journey through a pristine and rarely seen wilderness viewing an abundance of wildlife including platypus, kangaroos, emus, sea eagles and the iconic Snowy River Brunby.
