Our Swan River Paddle begins where the river starts to flow & navigation at the beginning is tricky, making it suitable for those looking for ADVENTURE that's why it's aptly named "Adventurous Spirit"!! 


Taking part in this kayaking adventure is not so much about being an experienced paddler, nor one's ability to even have paddled before.  It's more about having the willingness and being fit enough to pitch in ....haul, wade and maneuver the kayaks (helping one another as Adventurous Women do) through waterways at the beginning, which can be a bit tricky to navigate due to obstacles and water levels.  

 

The start of our journey is near All Saints, the oldest church in WA. It was built to mark the highest point that Stirling's boat reached in 1827.  Where we start our paddle is just a little further up the river on the other side and that's where the fun begins!  As a group, you will be maneuvering the kayaks to an area at the end of some tee trees ... The adventurous part!  From there you'll be paddling a section of the swan river where most have not paddled before and you probably won't see anyone else, other than the girls in your group until you get closer to Middle Swan.  This section is Swan Valley proper where vineyards and eateries line the banks of the river, old vines, tons of history and many places of interest.  

 

We will have a couple of stops and enjoy a picnic lunch under the shade of some trees along the way so you'll be able to rest at certain intervals throughout the day.

 

The distance of the Paddle is 11km and should be achievable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness.  No prior kayaking experience is required, however you need to be willing to pitch in and help your fellow paddlers if required.

 

**Our group of ladies who took part in the paddle earlier this year were absolutely buzzing about it and it's unique to Adventurous Women!!

A great weekend getaway in Margs. Many different things to do. Loved exploring the caves, Gin tasting and walking in the forest. Dinner at the pub was a great way to wind up the first day. Best part was having Jazzy do all the thinking so we could just chill out and enjoy the weekend.

What a wonderful weekend. Although I have been a frequent visitor to Margaret river I can honestly say I had not been to any of the places we visited. We did a lot but it wasn't too much…. It was a good pace.

Even a little bit of rain didn’t dampen our spirits. Accomodation was really good and was so well situated within the town. Our guide Jazzy was wonderful and was very good at rearranging our itinerary when rain caused a few problems meaning we didn’t miss out on anything - well done Jazzy…👏👏👏👏👏👏
