Kayak the Ovens - Tarrawingee or Everton
- Duration: 6 Hours (approx.)
- Location: Wangaratta, VIC
This longer paddle is for the more able kayaker looking to go out for longer, see more and have a bit more of an adventure. With more river to paddle there are more snags to navigate, more fishing to be done and more habitat to explore.
Take plenty of food and water or organise a River Tribe Adventures picnic. Some guests take fishing equipment and some go for the whole day. Some go for a speed challenge with the quickest doing the whole 24km in 4 hours. Plan the day, enjoy the river and do it in comfort on River Tribes quality river kayaks - built for this kind of adventure.
This route has to be one of the best along the Ovens River with its rich flora and fauna, amazing river vistas and a real feeling that you are far away from the crowds. The river twists and turns and is in a very natural state which helps to provide a rich environment and one that makes you feel that you are amongst nature.
River Tribe describes this stretch of river as un-touched, slightly adventurous but safe as long as you follow the rules of the river. Above all it is an intimate section of river with trees over-hanging and when you stop and take a look the river is full of life, it is alive with a menagerie of life not often seen, it feels healthy, natural, relaxing yet invigorating.
