DARLING-MURRAY RIVER SYSTEM - SUMMIT TO SOURCE TO SEA EXPEDITION 2019 (AUSTRALIA)
The Darling-Murray river system summit to source to sea expedition will begin with an ascent of Australia's highest peak (Mt. Kosciuszko – el. 7310 ft./2228m), followed by a 900-mile/1450km bicycle trek to the source of the continent’s longest river system, the Darling-Murray (2455 mi./3950km). From there, Rod will descend - on foot and in a kayak - the Condamine River (410 mi./610km), the Balonne River (300 mi./480km), the Culgoa River (305 mi./490km), the Darling River (915 mi./1470km), and the final 525 miles/850km of the Murray River to reach the Southern Ocean. A summit to source to sea journey along this route has never been attempted. The expedition will begin September 2019 and is expected to take five months to complete.
