Newspaper Jim and Ruth welcome you to Canoe the Riverland with them.

In 2006 Ruth set out to kayak the Murray River from source to sea. Her husband Jim drove the support vehicle and met up with her each night to camp on the beautiful banks of the Murray.

After a total of two months in such a wonderful environment, they committed to share their love of the river with others. In 2014 they bought and expanded this business, renaming it ‘Canoe the Riverland’.

If you would appreciate the beauty and tranquility of kayaking on one of the safest and unspoiled recreational rivers in the world, Canoe the Riverland has been designed for you. Launch from a riverside property that offers private and easy access to the biosphere and protected backwaters of Woolenook Bend.
