We were really pleased to see the introduction of online bookings for Parks SA campsites (National Parks) at the start of this year.

Guided Kayak Tours on the Murray River during high flows.
At Canoe Adventures we are SO EXCITED that the Murray River is in a period of high flows (end of 2016) and we can offer a special “High Flow” Tour Series.

It is important to note that we are talking about kayaking in the Murray River and the side creeks in our area, which are usually slow moving and calm, and the bank is never too far away. (We don’t recommend ocean kayaking or white-water kayaking for non-swimmers.)

This Saturday 10th September, 2016, will see the Berri Kayaking Group and interested others exploring new territory near Loxton at Yabby Creek and the Horseshoe Lagoons. Click here for a detailed trip report. We will meet at 8 at the riverfront at the Loxton Caravan Park (Look for the trailer full of kayaks). Let me know if you’d like a lift from Berri – I’ll be leaving home at 7.30am. We expect to be back at the cars late morning. [click to continue…]
