Kayaking is the best way to experience the beauty and relaxation of the creeks and lagoons around Renmark-Paringa.
Only 3 hours from Adelaide, you can launch from our riverfront property where creeks allow loops that take from an hour up to days of exploring the natural environment with its birds and wildlife.
Join a Guided Tour to learn more about the environment, or
hire a kayak to explore at your own pace. Your car will be at the landing when you return so pack a picnic and allow time to relax into the environment.
If you would appreciate the beauty and tranquility of kayaking on one of the safest and unspoiled recreational rivers in the world, Canoe the Riverland has been designed for you. Launch from our riverside property that offers private and easy access to the biosphere and protected backwaters of Woolenook Bend. Absorb the relaxation and choose when you want to return.
Our aim is to ensure you thoroughly enjoy your kayaking experience. We have kayaks and canoes to suit beginners through to experienced adventurers. Hire includes paddle and PFD (‘life jacket’) with rudder (optional) and waterproof storage.
We hold qualifications in teaching, kayak instruction and first aid, and provide instruction and assistance tailored to your level of experience.
A pleasant introduction to paddling and wetland wildlife in the cool of the evening.
The Sunset Tour is held in Renmark. Group outside the Visitor Centre and follow us to the launch at the Jane Eliza backwaters.
