The Black Swan Paddling Race

supported by Murray River Adventures

The Black Swan
2020 Date: 28 March 2020
Gunbower to Cohuna
46km / Gunbower Creek
Start: 10.00am
Start Location: Felix L’Huillier Park in Gunbower, Victoria
The Black Swan, is a 46km paddling race along the narrow and tightly winding Gunbower Creek.
The race starts at Creekside park in Gunbower, Victoria and finishes at Cohuna, Victoria in Apex Park.
This unique race is going to be a lot of fun and to win, you will need to have a lot of turning skills and strategy in very narrow conditions.
The creek has very little flow however there are several obstacles; a short 'white water' fish weir, three bridges, that depending on the creek height, you will get to go under or over and it also has a main weir that definitely requires a portage.
There is a main channel, however the creek is full of tree stumps and low hanging branches to make it all that more interesting.

Registration OPEN January 2020

Adults = $49.00
