Paddle 'n' Picnic Self Guided
In A World Of Your Own
The team at Dwellingup Adventures invite you to enjoy a self guided tour paddling the Murray River as an intimate experience without a large group. Dwellingup Adventures assist in support at the start and at the end of your tour providing logistics to get you to and from your vehicle. The rest of the day is completely up to you.
Tours depart from the Dwellingup Adventures office in Dwellingup at 10.30am for the ½ day tour and at 8.40am for the full day tour. When you arrive at Dwellingup you will need to complete the paper work for the canoe hire and your safety equipment will be issued. You may have your own dry containers or you may hire a 30 litre dry barrel along with other equipment. Please supply your own food and water as required. You then follow the team out to the tour finish at Baden Powell Water Spout and park your vehicle. Dwellingup Adventures will transport your party and canoes up to Island Pool for your paddle back to your vehicle where the team will meet you at Baden Powell Water Spout at 3pm and collect the canoes and equipment. The Murray River is reliant on natural rainfall patterns. Dwellingup Adventures will advise you if the water levels are unsuitable. Generally the ½ day tour is available all year. Water levels however require some portage over shallow sections. Bring a change of clothes that you can leave in your vehicle in case you fall out, it happens every now and then.
