The Snowy is an exceptional river. Despite being one of the most iconic rivers in Australia, many sections have rarely been seen since European occupation, which makes the area one of the few places in Australia with undisturbed Aboriginal occupation sites. The Snowy Hydro environmental restoration flows over the last few years have finally opened up one of the most breathtaking remote wilderness rivers in Australia. This five day white water rafting adventure builds your skills to paddle through towering granite gorges and over heart pumping rapids all the while surrounded by the peace and tranquility of the river and its surrounding pristine wilderness. Each afternoon you paddle up to your riverside campsite and unwind in the open air as your guides prepare your hearty evening meal. Experience a truely unique Australian camping experience where you can chose each night to have a 'yarn' around the campfire before retiring to your tent, or stay up listening to the many sounds of the unique Snowy ecosystems. The river corridor boasts an array of wildlife. Admire the abundant platypus, spot a Snowy River brumby, and keep an eye out for the kangaroos, emus, wombats, water dragons and bird life including sea eagles that are often encountered. The broad isolated granite gorges, abundant evidence of previous Indigenous occupancy and plentiful wildlife give this place an undeniable spiritual quality. We love the Snowy River, and we know you will too!
