Kinaba News

22 Jun 2014

I'm really sorry, but all the boats that are normally available to take people up to Kinaba have taken their owners sailing or on holidays.  And that means that the only way to get to Kinaba is to walk from Elanda Point opposite the canoe launch area, or paddle.  We are cancelling the picnic for this month, and the next one will be Sunday 31st August.

I apologize for the short notice, and if you would like to take yourselves there anyway for a picnic, you are most welcome.

Regards
Rikki for Interim Committee

June picnic invitation
21 Jun 2014

Our next b.y.o breakfast picnic at the Kinaba Information Centre is on Sunday 29th June 2014 from 9am.

Swim, paddle, row, sail, motor or hitch a ride with a local and come and join us and visit the Gateway to the Everglades.  So close and so delightful. As the Centre is in the National Park, no domestic animals thank you.

The latest working bee at Kinaba saw our volunteers Ken, Telena, David, Laurie, Mike, Jan, Bob, Lesley and Ian, Sue and Charlie painting, oiling, de-scaling or replacing corroded structural nuts, bolts, plates, and repaired water leaks and window and door screens.  

National Parks were able to support us by supplying sandpaper and brushes.  Another busy and productive morning at Kinaba.
