Canoes have been $25/canoe/day (will take 3 people) and camping will be about $10/adult/night and $5 for kids. You can bring your own white water capable canoe / closed in kayak.


The aim of Saturday will be to work on skill level and just having an enjoyable day on the canoes. Neville will provide some instruction and we will canoe between Neville's house and the campsite. For those that want a a more in-depth training it will be $25/person/day (1/2 price for kids) where Neville will paddle with you upstream - this cost include canoe hire.


The group to break into two groups with the more experienced canoers tackling ~15 km trip from Sues bridge which include some rapids etc. The other less experienced group/ younger children can either do some bushwalking and/ or biking around the camp site.

The river section paddled will be decided on arrival after discussion with Neville, the onsite property & canoe owner (based on river heights, group experience & numbers).  If Neville need to take us up stream the cost will be $35/person/day (1/2 price for children) - this cost include canoe hire.

This is a relaxing weekend on and by the river at a “rustic private camp” located on the banks of the Blackwood. 


There is a giant wooden shelter in the camp that contains large tables for playing games and keeping out of the rain – enough to fit everybody.  There is no power except for a small solar powered light in the shelter.   

Campsite also have:

- Flushing toilet

- Hot shower (need to warm water with fire)

- Drinking water

- Fire place

The Family Bushwalkers Club (as with Barrabup and Torbay) are the only ones staying at the camp adding to the security and peace of mind for the parents.
