Important Paddler Note

Every craft will start during the morning time-slots from the designated starting line.

You (and your team-mates) will paddle as much as you need to accomplish your own personal distance goals.


At the starting line, you will be asked which checkpoint (or the finish line) you aim to finish at for that day.


For safety reasons, crafts will not be able to start mid-way throughout the day.

If you are paddling a reduced distance and wish to finish at Swan Hill on the last day, then you will need to start at a set time from Check Point C.
