Discover the essence of the pristine Australian bush on a canoeing safari on the beautiful Goulburn River in Northern Victoria. The half day canoeing adventure takes you deep into the southern section of the huge Barmah Forest, a natural habitat for many species of water and forest birds.
Your half day canoeing adventure starts at Wyuna on the Lower Gouburn River National Park, which is 25-km east of Echuca and just over 2 hours due north from Melbourne.
On the day, meet your experience providers on the Murray Valley Highway and follow them to Yambuna Bridge where your vehicle is safely parked. They will then drive you upstream the appropriate distance and after being fitted with safety vests, and dry bags for cameras and other personal items you paddle off downstream on your adventure towards the bridge.
The river in this region is ideal for canoeing with only canoes and some local fishermen to be seen. The pristine red gum forest supports a wide variety of water and forest birds, and if you're really lucky you may get a glimpse of a shy platypus or two.
