MAKE A BOOKING

Suitable for novice paddlers. No experience necessary and all equipment including life jackets are supplied.
Please note when booking you are accepting responsibility that you're able to paddle and swim sufficiently well to stay safe.

This is the first in a series of paddles that will see us working our way along the Brisbane River Canoe Trail. Our aim is to break up the distance so we can enjoy the beauty and peace of the river with enough time to take in the scenery and enjoy a few side trips along the way.

The first stretch will see us launch near Wivenhoe Spillway and paddle approximately 9km to Lowood Bend. This is a beautiful part of the river with a few interesting sections to keep things fun. Along the way we will take a small side trip into Lockyer Creek before stopping about the half way point to enjoy a break and bite to eat.

After our break we will head on down to Lowood bend where we can try a little "ferry gliding" and negotiate some small Grade 1 (easy) rapids as a fun way to finish up our time on the water.

After we finish enjoy a cuppa and a sweet treat before finalising any car shuffling and heading home. 

More Information

Canoes will need to be carried to the water at Wivenhoe (2 people per canoe)  

Vehicles will be left at Lowood Bend and we will do a car shuffle to transport everyone up to Wivenhoe to begin the paddle so please leave your valuables at home or take them with you.

 

* Ferry Gliding
A ferry glide allows you to cross a current without moving up or down stream. Paddle into the current at a slight angle, fast enough to maintain your position up or down stream, and you will move across, driven by the current.

The girls were very helpful in assisting to ensure you felt comfortable on the horse before leaving your side. I was more nervous than i thought i would be, so i really appreciated this.

Sue O and Leonie did a fantastic job responding to the incident, they remained calm, reassuring Phillipa and managed the situation as best as possible. Very reassuring know that if anyone was to find themselves in trouble that you are safe and supported should anything happen. And as always the baking is top notch. Thanks Brad.
