I have paddled the whole thing, one drop is usually portaged. You will get to a steep section, just scout everything is shallow, but paddleable.

If it is up, I will paddle the Corang as a preference unless the Shoalhaven is over 1.5m (then I will paddle the Shoalhaven). The first few km's are full of bushes, some choose to walk around them, I could squeeze between them last year (2002)

From where the Corang meets the Shoalhaven, paddle down the Shoalhaven to the Powerlines and get out there, unless your into pain, then paddle out to Tallowa dam in your playboat.
