Canoeing and rafting

The Snowy River offers thrilling canoeing and white water rafting opportunities with rugged gorges, rapids, flat sections with sand bars and beautiful scenery. The gently sloping sand bars make ideal campsites for extended trips. Remember to check river levels and weather conditions with the Bureau of Metrology before you leave.

The most popular section for canoeing or white water rafting is from McKillops Bridge to Balley Hooley at the Buchan River junction. This trip takes three to four days to complete.

Prepare carefully for any river trip. Consult guide books or speak to the Victorian Canoe Association. You should include someone with canoeing or rafting experience or someone who knows the river in your group. Always leave details of your itinerary with a responsible person.
