    What to Expect
    Be prepared for more than a little splashing as you paddle through the boiling rapids and breaking waves carving their way through gorges and valleys full of native bushland. The kayaks we use are awesome, very stable and forgiving so it is suitable for total beginners to navigate their way down the white-water rapids.

    This white water kayaking adventure is guaranteed to get the heart pumping. So come and join us on Melbourne’s Yarra river for an awesome kayaking adventure! Great fun for Summer and winter! 

    This adventure operates every weekend through out the year and also every day from the end of December through to the end of February. Start times vary depending on the season however we generally operate a session at 10am and one at 1430 with earlier and later sessions available in summer months.

    The location for this activity is the end of Lower homestead road, Wonga park. We meet in the gravel carpark next to the river.

    I had an absolute ball doing the White Water Kayaking! I was super nervous thinking I would not be able to do it! I didn't need to be! great guide and totally cool for beginners and the more experienced! I had no idea this existed so I am glad I found it! I will do it again!

    Paul's confidence that we could to do it paid off. Novices negotiated the bumps of the Yarra and everyone made it back into the raft after a swim. It was an excellent way to spend a morning.

    My partner and I had a great time Kayaking, the rapids are well spaced out, so you have time to admire the scenery and the wildlife in between the 'faster' sections of the river - we saw a snake crossing the river, and a wombat on the bank! Paul was a great guide and made sure

    Paul made everyone feel right at home from the get go. Helping those who had never been in a kayak before, soaking those who were trying to get him and making the whole experience fantastic. I'd highly recommend booking with the Adventure Merchants and I'll be back just as soon

    We had a unique and totally fun time. Navigating the S bends, dodging the branches and Kayaking under the Eucalyptus tree crossing the Yarra were just a few interesting and challenging features for the day. Resting for a moment in a quiet part of the Yarra we were lucky
