Some take it serious and others take an Esky ! take on a challenge and finish on the riverbank with the Canoe and Cray crowd to cheer you on, take in the landscapes from a prime viewing position on a kayak.

Murchison Dash is a flat water paddle that features tidal influences and shallow water. This creates good marathon training and Pre Avon river fitness. This event is a point to point paddle starting at the Murchison Station to the mouth of the river.

When on the river there is incredible views of rock features.
