The mighty Blackwood, Donnelly, Warren, Shannon, Preston and Frankland Rivers make their way through the Southern Forests and Valleys region, providing a tranquil way to enjoy the sights and sounds of our region,


As you glide along the spectacular waterways and coast in your canoe or kayak, take in the wonder surrounds from the water. Many of our trails are also suitable for paddleboarding.


The water level and flow rate are especially significant when paddling in rivers. Paddling conditions vary greatly through the seasons and throughout the day. For ocean and estuary paddling in particular the winds, tides and currents are important factors.
