Event Description

Fancy exploring another part of the river system in Perth? The Canning River flows into the Swan river, but further up this tributary is a different river form the Swan.

The Canning river trip starts and finnishes at Riverton bridge, we paddle upstream past Kent St Weir and enjoy the  quieter reaches of the river and it's wildlife. On the way back we will stop at Kent St Weir and grab a coffee at the cafe there.

This paddle is suitable for all paddler levels and craft, however as a club paddle it is required that paddlers attending have undertaker an Intro to Kayaking course or can dempnstate a similar level of skill /experience. PFD's are mandatory as it is a club trip.

You will have to supply your own craft or hire one from the club, and transport it to and from Riverton bridge or find a fellow paddler who has a roof rack and can assist!
