Dates to be confirmed


*** Latest event details are yet to be confirmed ***

Aspiring white water paddlers can get a taste of canoeing or kayaking at the annual Spring Paddling Open Day presented by Barrington Outdoor Adventures. This popular free event returns to the scenic riverside location at The Steps Rapids on the Barrington River.

Open Day guests can try out some paddling for free on the calm water above The Steps Rapids, with the minimum age 12 years in a kayak, or six years in a canoe with an accompanying adult. This is a fun introduction to a lifetime of confident paddling adventures that families will love.

Adults and kids over 12 years can join the kayak shuttle service for a longer self-guided trip on the river. The four kilometre journey features Grade Two rapids and takes about 30 to 60 minutes to complete. It includes kayak, helmet, flotation vest and transport.
