Whitewater Paddling At Myrtleford (3 Hours)

AUD $145.00
  • Duration: 3 Hours
  • Location: Myrtleford, Victoria

This adventure offers enjoyable river paddling experience with some grade 1 and 2 rapids suitable for beginners and families. We begin this adventure with some basic paddle skills, with personalized coaching from our leaders as needed. Once the practice is completed we travel  downstream along the spectacular Ovens River where you will learn a range of moving and white water paddling skills.

Mostly run in summer when the water levels are lower and slower, you will enjoy the idyllic surrounds of the region as you paddle your way down the cool, alpine waters of the Ovens River from the Clear-water reserve at Myrtleford to the pull out point at the snow road bridge. Relax as you quietly float your way downstream and then embark upon the more challenging segments of the low-level (Grade one and two) white-water rapids towards the end of the adventure. The day’s activities end at the snow road bridge (Where we will have organized a car shuffle so your vehicle is at the finish point). A wonderful family adventure suitable for 6 years plus (a basic swimming ability is required).
