The Course - 2020

 

One of the world’s longest paddling races, the Massive Murray Paddle has been connecting people, river and country since 1969. Starting in Yarrawonga and finishing in Swan Hill, it is the longest event of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

 

While we paddle the same stretch of river, no two Massive Murray Paddle's are the same, therefore course maps are updated annually.

 

Each map below shows the course and information for the day's paddling. Although we repeat the course this year, you will need to download each day's map for specific information.
