This blog will introduce you to the Goulburn River and its national park, and the kayaking and canoeing safaris that we offer.
Goulburn River & National Park
The Goulburn is Victoria’s largest river basin, flowing from the Great Dividing Range all the way down to the Murray River in South Australia. This river is rich with environmental, cultural and recreational history and value.
The Goulburn River National Park has both forest and riverside settings and offers many opportunities for swimming, fishing, hiking, camping, and so much more. This park is full of unique Australian wildlife for you to spot. It’s also rich in Indigenous heritage, with more than 300 known sites along the river.
There are many camp and picnic sites located along the riverbanks, so you can enjoy a refreshing picnic break or pitch your tent for the night and recharge for the next day.
