Accommodation: We will be camping on the Peninsula - location TBA - probably Balnarring - you are welcome to join us there or organise your own luxury accommodation. Camping gear does not have to fit in your kayak (we are day paddling) so you can go luxury camping/camper trailer/caravan if you wish.
