• Canoeing and Inland Paddle Boarding

Canoe and kayak ownership in Australia has increased by 250 per cent in the last ten years, which is part of the Loddon Valley’s motivation to offer safe and dedicated canoe trails for both experienced and novice paddlers.

There’s no better place to enjoy your watercraft than on the Serpentine Creek Canoe Trail. Developed by La Trobe University, the Loddon Shire Council, the State Government and Dja Dja Wurrung, the trail starts with a purpose-built ramp for easy entry into the water.

Part of the five-kilometre trail’s purpose is to share the historic and ecological stories of this place. Marker buoys are situated at the points of interest and can be found via a map, or GPS. Learn about the area’s Indigenous, settlement and natural history as you paddle.

Ever wanted to try paddle boarding? The experienced team at Stillwater Paddleboards offer guided lessons on the gorgeous Loddon River. It’s a tranquil way to experience one of Victoria’s great rivers, and a personal challenge.

Experienced paddlers can go their own way at any of the Loddon Valley’s waterways, choose from the Loddon River, Serpentine Creek, Little Lake Boort and Laanecoorie Reservoir.
