Had lunch in Paynesville yesterday, bit windy but otherwise a perfect day.  We found our pretty little Curlip on Raymond Island.  Can’t wait for work to begin, and I’m looking forward to taking some great photos and live video as the work progresses.

If you are interested in being involved, please come along to our ” Friends of Curlip” group on Facebook.  As events unfold, we will bring them to you there, and we’re hoping for some social events, picnics, BBQ’s and maybe a few fund raising events as well, but mostly just so that we can all feel a part of this new venture for East Gippsland. We strongly encourage chat and sharing on this group, photos or stories about the Curlip, and pretty much anything related to her is more than welcome.  A chance to share your passion for this beautiful little Paddle Steamer.   If you don’t want to be involved to that extent, but would still like to be up to date with what’s happening, we have a Facebook Page  “Friends of Curlip”  that you can watch without having to join.

Every offer of help is valued, whether you can help with organising a picnic, or some elbow grease to help restore Curlip,  or any other skill or talent you can bring, there is a place for every single person who wants to help.The Friends of Curlip page hosts a Register of Volunteers, or you can contact me directly if you don’t want your information to be public on the group. Information is available on the group page, or contact me here via the Contact Form.

The more people who are involved and get behind the Venture, the more funding we can gain, and the better the whole Curlip experience will be for everyone!

I am very enthusiastic about the whole project, and cant’t wait to see her on the water, taking Students and Tourists and of course, us locals, on magical tours!

Please feel free to contact me if you would like any further information.
