The Inverell Shire Council’s first event of the It Starts With You program kicked off with a kayaking tour of Lake Inverell. An awesome group of 23 kids, aged from 12 to 20 years of age took to the water on Wednesday afternoon to paddle around the lake, guided by JA Tours – Joeys Adventure Kayaking Tours.
The free event was such a great success that it was booked out well in advance, and there are plans to repeat it again in May.
The tour is just one of a series of similar action-packed events currently in the pipes. The 12-month initiative is organised by the Inverell Shire Council and funded by the NSW government.
Coming up are many more activities jam-packed with adventure and skill-building. The council is wary of officially announcing the activities, so all we can say is that each one will be unique and an alternative to the usual fodder on offer.
