Kayaks, canoes get thumbs up at Barkers

After many decades of being banned, kayaks and canoes are now permitted to go out on Barkers Creek Reservoir.
Member for Bendigo West Maree Edwards yesterday took to the local reservoir in a kayak herself as she announced the new move which is understood to be the first time a Coliban Water reservoir has been opened for on-water access of any kind. Full story in today’s Castlemaine Mail.
