Katherine Stars Canoeing Adventure

With perfect sunny clear skies in August, the Katherine Stars team took advantage of the opportunity to teach our Year 10 and 11 Stars students some flat-water canoe skills at the Katherine Gorge.

After a sunset hike to the Baruwei Lookout and a nights stay at Nitmiluk National Park, we set out for a four-hour paddle along the beautiful Katherine river.

The girls quickly learned that the key to paddling well is communication with your canoe partner, a bit of effort with your strokes, and working together as a team. The scenery was spectacular for the students, who managed to return back without a single capsize!
