Clarence Canoe and Kayak Trail

Paddling the longest white water trail in Australia

195 kms trail/ 8 waterfalls / 12 campsites / 8 sections

ONE TRAIL, MANY DIFFERENT LEVELS

The Clarence Canoe & Kayak Trail is the longest mapped whitewater trail in Australia – covering more than 195km of river between Nymboi-Binderay National Park and the township of Copmanhurst – and contains some of the most diverse paddling conditions found anywhere in the world. 

The combined weight of three spectacular river systems are at your disposal here: the Nymbodia, Mann and Clarence rivers. Which means that one moment you can be gently cruising along glassy sections with barely a ripple, admiring the beautiful scenery, and the next moment you’re holding on for dear life through bone-rattling Grade 3 and 4 rapids with names like Tombstone and Demolition Derby. 

Don't worry or be freaked out by this epic once-in-a-life-time trail, its not just for the dare devil adventure type. There are 8 sections of varying degrees of difficulty which also includes friendly family, novice paddling on the river. Just ask us whereabouts, and we will definitely point you in the right direction
