Media Release 08.12.2022

The Southern 80 Ski Race has a new date for 2023.

Friday 24th to the 26th March 2023.

The river is slowly receding away in Echuca/Moama, and we look forward to seeing the river within its banks in the coming weeks ahead. The bushlands around the river are wet and will need to be assessed by Parks Victoria and NSW National Parks and Wildlife to ensure safety for all.

With this in mind, the Moama Water Sports Club have decided to move the Southern 80 Ski Race from the traditional date in February to a new date for 2023 the 24th to the 26th of March.

We encourage you to visit Echuca/Moama over the coming holiday period and discover our region beyond the river.

We look forward to seeing you for the 2023 Southern 80 on the 24th to the 26th March 2023.
