Welcome to the very first official Australian Packraft Meetup! This event is being hosted by a number of passionate local Tasmanian packrafters and is supported by Canoe Tasmania. This is the first time that such a large number of packrafters are meeting up as a community in Australia to celebrate packrafting. Over the last few years a number of Australians have attended similar international packrafting events in the USA (called ‘Roundups’ over there) and in New Zealand where they have gained a lot from the opportunity to meet similarly like-minded people. We may well see some participants from these countries visit our event here. The Meetup is a great chance to learn from each other, to share stories and to find others who are as mad keen on these lightweight inflatable exploration tools and packrafting missions as you are.
