Kayaking or canoeing Edward River in Murray Valley National Park is a great adventure that awaits you. Spend a few hours on the river, a whole day, or organise a multi-day journey and camp as you go at various places along the way. There are so many options.
Edward River is a peaceful, lesser-known alternative to the nearby Murray River, so it’s ideal for paddlers of all age groups and experience levels. It also allows you to escape the summer crowds that can flock to Murray River during the holidays and over long weekends. Along Edward River canoe and kayak trail are beaches and swimming spots, which are great places to stop and have a picnic.
Edward River lies within the traditional lands of the Wamba Wamba and Perrepa Perrepa Nations. The traditional name for the river is ‘Kolety’ (pronounced ‘kol-etch’).
