Sadly cancelled, see Rob's comment below. 


Taking expressions of interest for a combined rafting and kayaking trip down the Thomson river. Its scenic, entertaining grade II/II+, and one of the few overnight white-water trips we run for the year. Yes, this will be an overnight adventure, spending Saturday night sleeping by the riverside. 

Please note these dates are only approximate and the trip may be pretty last minute as we only get warning of the release ~7 days ahead. To paddle this river we require a dam release which is only announced on short notice.

Also, apologies for the car related questions that are required!

Required skill levels:

    Rafting (novice):

  • Swim 50m comfortably

    Kayaking (beginner/intermediate):

  • Be in control on the Yarra
  • Be confident to perform and receive a t-rescue

*Please note numbers are highly car and leader dependent and as such those with little kayaking experience may be asked to raft instead of kayak if leader numbers change closer to the date
