Posselt paddles back home

ALSTONVILLE man Steve Posselt has just returned from his latest kayaking adventure, paddling almost 6000km to learn more about the Victorian river system.

He paddled the Goulburn and Yarra rivers to highlight the nationally significant issue of Melbourne's North South Pipeline.

Mr Posselt said Melbourne was 'stealing' water from the dying Murray River system.

After completing the journey and travelling to the lower Murray, he said: “I have to get home. This is distressing. I don't want to hear any more of the terrible stories. It makes me so pessimistic. It is like we have declared war on our environment.”
