We’ve walked it. We’ve ridden it. Now we’ve paddled Hobart’s underground Rivulet in packrafts! There wasn’t as much water as we expected following the late Autumn snow melt but just enough flow lower down to play in.
It’s definitely cool how no one blinks an eye when you walk around Ho-town in your paddling gear, and even cooler that packrafts fit easily into average size backpacks. Stealth adventure mode… kinda! 🙂
If you are thinking of exploring Hobart’s rivulet keep in mind that it is prone to flash flooding. There are numerous section where the roof lowers dramatically i.e. You do not want to be trapped in there with rising water. Check the weather forecast – rain on the mountain ends up in the rivulet.
