Kayaking Ovens River- Ariel shot

Come for a splash on the Ovens River! Lower river flows in the warmer months turn the river into a mellower, friendlier paddle that's a perfect way to cool down. The rapids and whitewater are still there for some excitement, just turned down a few notches. We'll paddle some mellow rapids, play with some paddling skills, and perhaps even be lucky enough to see the elusive Bright platypus on our way.
Kids are super welcome so long as they are capable of paddling their own sit-on-top kayak, confident around water and weigh at least 25kg to fit our smallest PFDs. If anyone is finding some river sections a bit challenging we'll just portage around!
