Kayaking in Murrumbidgee

From
$220/day

The Snowy is an exceptional river. Despite being one of the most iconic rivers in Australia, many sections have rarely been seen since European occupation. The steep granite gorges mean the only way to explore the river is by canoe/kayak, and for 40 years this river was made even more remote through the low river levels created by the Jindabyne dam. The Snowy Hydro environmental restoration flows over the last few years have finally opened up one of the most breathtaking remote wilderness rivers in Australia.  You will start your journey learning river safety and valuable paddling skills that will help you negotiate whitewater in the days to come. The river corridor boasts an array of wildlife. Admire the abundant platypus, spot a Snowy River brumby, and keep an eye out for the kangaroos, emus, wombats, water dragons and bird life including sea eagles that are often encountered. The majestic, rarely witnessed Snowy Falls acts as a gatekeeper to the Byadbo Wilderness. While previous paddling experience is not required, a love of the wilderness, along with a sound level of fitness is essential.  Once you have traversed Snowy Falls, the next 4 days allow for a relaxed paddling experience through an environment that is akin to stepping back in time. Let the river guide you through amazing granite formations surrounded by one of the last strong-holds of Cypress Pine in Australia. The Byadbo Wilderness is located within a rain shadow, enabling comfortable, open and dry camping. Spend your afternoons swimming, bushwalking the ridges, or relaxing with a book on your own private beach. After over 20 years experience guiding and paddling countless rivers, we believe this section of the Snowy is the nicest multi-day wilderness paddling experience in Australia. The broad isolated granite gorges, abundant evidence of previous Indigenous occupancy and plentiful wildlife give this place an undeniable spiritual quality. We love the Snowy River, and we know you will too. If you have any questions, we can answer those through GetMyBoat’s messaging platform before you pay.
