‘Posh’ coracles all lined up for a river joyride …
These coracles are made of bamboo woven together to form a light frame and covered by thick plastic sheeting to make it waterproof. They support 6-8 people at a time ….. interesting considering that the river at this stretch has a number of crocs (ok small 2-3 ft ones – but still!!).
These gentrified coracles are a far cry from the traditional ones used by fishermen on the river which have the same frame but get covered by large leaves and an outer coating of tar.
