See what others have to say about their experience with Canoe Adventures Riverland.
Wonderful long weekend of kayaking and camping. Scenery was interesting, great camping spots were recommended along the river. Saw kangaroos, emus, kookaburra, possums, spoonbills, pelicans. Kym and Karen are so lovely, helpful and knowledgeable. The sunset kayak was fun. Open fires in the evenings. Really recommend this as a fantastic way to have fun and unwind for evening, day or even better several days. Will be back with the family.
Saw the excellent reviews for Canoe Adventures - Riverland. Tim and Karen deserve all the positive press they get. They make sure you have the right boat and gear and you go to the best places. My wife and I can’t describe how much we enjoyed seeing the flora and fauna around Renmark and Berri. The serenity and beauty of the River and it’s extensive backwaters is restorative. We found the Riverland people unfailingly helpful. We had a memorable four days in the Riverland.
A friend and I wanted to go camping on Lindsay Island VIC to do spot of carp fishing and mucking about in canoes for a few days. Apart from hiring good serviceable canoes and all associated equipment at an all inclusive reasonable hire rate, Kym and Andrew supplied detailed topographic maps of the locality and provided us with comprehensive advice of the creek systems and the surrounding country; all delivered with great friendliness and enthusiasm. We would not have enjoyed the break nearly so much without using their services.
As we stayed a short time in Berri we only could go for a half day canoeing trip. We found Canoe Adventures in the web and a flyer of them at the tourist information in Berri. Our first call was answered very friendly with the proposal of several short routes. The next day we met a staff member with exactly the right boat on top of his car. He drove us to the Gurra Gurra Creek and wanted to pick us up at Lock 4 whenever we would arrive there. As we are quite experienced canoers we arrived there after 3 hours already - and this after a long swimming break in Murray River. As we were back so soon our guide showed us around at the locks, explained fish and birdlife and showed us how high the water was at the flood of 1956. Although we came back to our camper quite soon we had a perfect day.
Staying in the Riverland for a few months and saw this tour online on Saturday arvo and Andrew the guide was happy to take me out on a tour the following morning. First time canoeing and had an awesome time. Andrew was a great guide and had lots of great information and anecdotes on the life of the River and creeks etc. Also stop and have a nice snack of local fruits and nuts provided. Will definitely have to go again!
This was simply an awesome trip which I can thoroughly recommend to anyone. We did the sunset canoe excursion with two young children (aged 8 and 12) with Andrew as our guide. Using two man canoes (one adult and one child in each) we started off at 6pm from Berri and drove a short distance to where we launched off, getting onto the water around 6:30pm. Andrew was very informative, gave a wonderful description of the river and wildlife as we paddled along the calm waters and we had some great close up views of Kangaroos drinking at the water's edge. The sunset as we joined the main river was breathtaking and after stopping for a quick picnic, supplied by Andrew, we donned our head torches and paddled the river in the dark spotting wallabies as we went.......truely an amazing experience. Honestly this is one of the best tours we have ever done and simply a must if you are in this area. Well done Andrew and Kym!!
So impressed with this company. Kayaks, safety equipment, maps, and inside knowledge were all top notch. Kym provides a wonderful service and have no hesitation in recommending this company to others.
A fantastic canoe trip on the Murray with our 3 boys (11, 9 ,4). Kym suggested an easy 6km route which was a combination of river and creeks. Saw lots of bird life. Highly recommend.
Kym is a very knowledgeable and friendly tour guide. The river at sunset is stunning and serene. Behind every good man is a great woman and Karen works tirelessly behind the scenes to make this experience special also. Enjoyed a lovely cuppa and some local treats while taking in the sunset and wildlife. Precious memories!
My husband and I went out for a guided tour with Kym, and it was fantastic! Kym was absolutely wonderful. Originally we wanted to go out at sunset, but due to his weather advice, we decided to go out the following morning instead which was great advice (considering the storm front that below in that afternoon that we had no idea about!). Kym helped me get in and out of the kayak, had amazing local knowledge of the wildlife and Murray River, and gave us a fabulous morning tea in a great camping spot. The kayak paddling was easy-going at our own pace, and we sure learnt a lot about the amazing river system. We would definitely recommend this tour!
