Jawoyn Stone Country Ultra Challenge

22 enthusiastic Jawoyn rangers and TO’s headed out on country to walk the stone country between the Waterhouse and Katherine Rivers. On a billabong on the Katherine River where canoes were delivered late last year a group set off canoeing down the river. At the same time on-ground burning was conducted. This allows the rangers to undertake fine scale burning and protect cultural sites and small patches of sensitive vegetation communities. Travin Shields was one of the rangers who designed the track using GIS technologies and was one of the group leaders, he reckons, ‘it’s great to walk on country and visit the sites and fun with mob of young people’.
