New experience at Lake Conjola

Lake Conjola ShoalhavenThere’s a whole new experience for locals and visitors to the NSW South Coast with the launch of Conjola Tours this week as part of the 2016 National Trust Heritage Festival.

Inspired by the 2016 National Trust Heritage Festival theme “Discoveries and rediscoveries’ and developed by Kotahi Tourism, Conjola tours shares stories of history, heritage and natural environment on a leisurely 2-hour guided walk at Lake Conjola.

National Trust Heritage Festival Manager, Eloise Hairman said “Kotahi Tourism’s insightful and engaging tour ‘Poihākena tours: stories of Māori in Sydney’ was the winner of the 2015 National Trust Heritage Awards for tours and multi-media. We are thrilled to promote and experience the new tour about Lake Conjola’s history and heritage in the 2016 National Trust Heritage Festival.”

Stories include the fascinating past of first European settler Thomas Kendall, floods, fishing, heritage-listed holiday houses and local endangered species. The 2.5 km walk departs from outside the Lake Conjola Post Office and includes a lakeside ‘cuppa’.
