MurrayRiverPaddle

Beginners and Juniors can choose to challenge themselves at the beginner friendly Taste or Junior distance, not as challenging as the Ultra or Enduro distances but no less fun. More adventurous paddlers looking for a little more might opt to undertake the Enduro event, a longer distance with great scenery along the way. For the real adventurer, and most fun, the Ultra is your option; a journey in life down the wonderful Murray River.

Our paddle courses provide a great way to explore the lower Murray River and take in the fantastic riverside scenery. If you are new to paddling, or haven’t paddled before, that’s ok, just choose a distance you think you can manage and awaken your senses to the very different scenic perspectives you get from a water level viewpoint.

These courses are suitable for all paddle craft from plastic kayak/sit on, to SUP, Ski, outrigger, K1. The only requirement is that your craft has built in buoyancy.

ULTRA 17km

Course description:

The course is pretty simple, just point the bow downstream and follow behind. Along the way you will pass plenty of sweet bankside scenery as you move towards the finish line at Ravenswood Hotel. Immerse yourself in the views and wildlife along the banks and enjoy your journey. Don’t relax so much that you forget to navigate though because there may be different line options as you head downstream through shallower sections.

Bus: To assist Ultra paddlers without vehicle support we are running buses from the finish line back to your start locations. You need to drop your craft at the start line and drive to the finish to catch a bus back to start. Ultra bus leaves Ravenswood finish at 6:45 am sharp.  You need to book a place on those buses HERE.

Bus must be booked to ensure you get a seat.
