Our hosts Ruth and Jim were extremely accomodating, professional and friendly throughout the booking processes, briefings and tour itself. The backwaters were very safe for children, providing...

We had a great day exploring the creeks and lagoons, travelled 12kms and had no complaints from the kids (aged 12 and 10)! We saw a snake, water rats, lots of different birds and caught a huge carp in the lagoon that scared the living daylights out of the kids! Great time, great memories 👍 Thanks to Ruth, we'll be...

We took our English friends for an experience paddling the Murray for 3 hours & found the experience the best- the serenity was amazing & all the better for the advice given by the people @ Canoe the Riverland on the best routes to take. They now take some photos back home with them re this experience

Our group had a wonderful time camping at Canoe the Riverland for a few days last month, paddling the local backwaters and joining a sunset paddle on the Sunday night. A night paddle is always a wonderful thing, just out of the ordinary, and it was very serene going back in the moonlight, just lovely ! We all enjoyed the... More

Moonlight Canoeing is so different from your usual day tours. The peaceful calm tranquility of the river at night disturbed only by the splash of your oar or the squawk of a night bird or the occasional house boat moored at the shore. We where a bit rusty at first having not canoed for many years but Ruth made light... More

A very easy to use Kayak system of a quiet paddle around some lovely creeks and of course, the Murray River in SA. Very Friendly proprietors and they know their stuff. We camped there overnight as well and although a bit rudimentary ,it all worked for us .Clean camp kitchen with a stove/oven that would put Master Chef to shame,... More

Easy to find and check in. For first time canoeists we thoroughly enjoyed the few hours we spent. I doubted whether I would get the hang of paddling but after a bit of trial and error I managed to stay upright and not get wet!! It is so relaxing and quiet.. must do whilst in the Riverland.
