What you can expect

Embrace the tranquility of the Murray River on a 4.5 hour self guided paddle and picnic canoe tour suitable for ages 4 years and over. Meet at the Dwellingup Trails and Visitor Centre to collect your safety equipment and canoe before following the guide to the start point.

Navigate the long pools, fast moving channels and small rapids along the forest lined river bank at your own pace. When you start feeling hungry, find a cosy place ashore to enjoy your own picnic lunch or snacks and cool off with a refreshing river swim. After lunch, gently paddle downstream to the finish point where you’ll rendezvous with your vehicle after a relaxing day on Murray River.
