White water kayaking close to Melbourne. Experience a half day 'ridin rapids', only 35 minutes from the Melbourne CBD. Ride through 12+ 'Class II' rapids as you paddle approximately six kilometres down the Yarra River, surrounded by native flora and fauna. Accessible by public transport too!
Enjoy the feeling of floating, splashing through rapids and paddling down the Yarra River, surrounded by native Australian flora and fauna. The experience is approximately 5 kilometres, but don't worry about the distance, you're in a boat with another person and the current helps you cruise along too. Single kayaks are also available for the more adventurous!
Group numbers will vary for each trip. Minimum numbers of 4 apply, with a usual maximum of up to 12 plus the guide/s. There is a maximum of 20 participants. Larger groups are available for special events/functions. Depending on group size, there will usually be a minimum of 1 tour guide for up to 5 craft.
Warm fleecy tops are provided on wet, windy and cooler days. In the case of extreme weather, Total Fire Bans, severe weather or flood warnings or high winds, access to the tree lined river may be closed and very high river levels may cause us to postpone tours due to safety considerations. All tours are reconfirmed a few days prior when the weather forecast is more accurate but clients can also contact the tour operator with any queries.
Please wear comfortable clothes that may get wet and are suitable for the weather conditions; gym wear, leggings or fleecy tops and woollen socks are preferable at colder times. Shorts and synthetic tshirts are fine for warm sunny summer days. Closed toe shoes such as runners are a must. A list is provided upon booking. Bring a change of dry clothes and a small towel too that can be left in your vehicle so you have access to it at the end of the tour. Water bottles are highly recommended but please don't bring glass.
Children between the ages of 6 and 13 years must be accompanied by a parent/guardian or older sibling/friend of 14 years and up on the water. For those between 14-16 years, a parent or guardian must be at the pick up and drop off points as public amentities blocks can be used.
This experience takes place in the gorgeous old gold mining village of Warrandyte in the Yarra Valley, Victoria.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
