  • Description

    The Paddle Adventure Experience on the Yarra River is an action packed half day of kayaking on Grade 1 & 2 white water.

    • 1-2 person kayaks or inflatable rafts
    • Full instruction from qualified guides
    • Less than 1 hour drive from Melbourne CBD

    After a gear & safety brief and car shuttle, it’s time to hit the river and embark on a 1.5hr journey through some of the most scenic sections of the Yarra Valley River. On the first flat-water section of the river you will learn how to steer the boats and who to splash or avoid! This prepares you for the rapids that lie ahead.

    The Yarra meanders through bush land of the Yarra Valley. During the day there is the possibility of seeing a range of wildlife on the river banks including Kangaroo’s, wallabies, echidna or a Koala. Sometimes we have even seen wildlife in the river including platypus, eels and there are always many water birds.
