The Murray River has some of the best kayaking and canoeing experiences in the world. We’re not talking about rapids (although the river is very fast in the mountains), instead imagine the peace and serenity as you silently glide and discover the backwaters, creeks and lagoons on one of the many dedicated kayak and canoe trails along in our region.

There is so much river to explore with bio-diversity and abundant riverbanks that sustain so much life.
