Do you want to paddle the Snowy with us?
We would like to invite members of our community to join us for a guided paddle (by canoe or raft) on the Snowy River at Orbost on Saturday 7th April at 9.30am.
What a great opportunity to experience a stretch of this legendary river from the water, with the support and guidance of qualified and experienced recreational instructors. You will also learn about the history of the river and be shown sites demonstrating significant improvements to the river’s health from the combined efforts of community groups, landholders and government agencies.
Suitable for people with no prior paddling experience, participants do need to be reasonably fit and agile to enter the canoes or rafts and complete the approx 5km trip. The minimum age is 12 years and we ask that each child is accompanied by an adult.
There is no charge for this event but numbers will be limited so early booking is advisable. Participants will be required to bring clothing and any personal supplies, and be prepared to get wet! Here is a handy list of items to consider.
Please note that this paddle is subject to weather conditions and river flows.
