MAGNIFICENT SEVEN EXPEDITION: STAGE TWO - DARLING-MURRAY RIVER SYSTEM - SUMMIT TO SOURCE TO SEA (AUSTRALIA)

Stage Two of the Magnificent Seven Expedition will begin with an ascent of Australia's highest peak (Mt. Kosciuszko – el. 7310 ft./2228m), followed by a 870-mile/1400km 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 January 2017 and is expected to take five months to complete.
