Kayaking & canoeing

The Murray River is ideal for canoeing and kayaking.

Experience the peace and serenity as you silently glide on the water discovering the backwaters, creeks, beaches and lagoons of Sun Country on the Murray.

The region is rich with Aboriginal culture with canoe trees and sacred burial grounds all within close proximity. Whether you hire equipment and create your own adventure or consider a guided tour with one of our fully qualified local operators, this experience will not disappoint.

Our waterways are lined by lush bushland making kayaking the river a great way to spot native animals, water and forest bird species that can be observed in their natural environment.

Travel at your own pace and tick kayaking from Bundalong to Barmah off your bucket list. Break up the journey into smaller day trips and set up camp along the way. With over 101 beautiful inland beaches between Yarrawonga to Tocumwal, there is no shortage of places to enjoy the company of others around the campfire, go swimming or fishing, take the time to relax and explore the small towns by the river.
