Only 45 mins from Melbourne we have found the perfect setting to experience white water kayaking. Wonga Park is just far enough from Melbourne CBD to satisfy those seeking a quiet, retreat from the hustle and bustle of the city without hours of travel. It is also located just 10 minutes from some of Victoria’s best wineries such as Rochford Wines and Yering Station.

When you arrive you will be greeted by our fun guides who will get you all the gear you need for the day and organise to get your car to the finishing point. After this it is time to hit the water where you will be taken through a skills session. The first kilometre is nice and flat, which is perfect because it gives you an opportunity to practice your new-found skills before the real fun starts!

Once you get to the first rapid your instructors will have another quick chat teaching you what to do, what not to do and how to correct yourself when you do the things you were told not to do! Then the fun really begins with grade 1-2 rapids every few hundred meters.

You will have ample opportunity to test your new-found white water kayaking skills and take in the beautiful scenery. Your instructors will also give you some tips along the way and challenge you with different techniques. We cater to our group whether timid or adventurous and have a good time, every time!
