Yarra Valley Grammar Link@9 Step Up Step Out: Canoeing

Yarra Valley Grammar

PROGRAM OVERVIEW

The Murray provides abundant opportunities to canoe through large stands of River Red Gums whilst enjoying the unique opportunity to camp beside the river. This river has some of the best canoeing experiences in the world. We are not talking about rapids; instead imagine the peace and serenity as you glide silently to discover the backwaters, creeks and lagoons that form the Murray River.
Students will be placed in groups of no more than 15 students per group. Each group will be accompanied by a Yarra Valley Grammar School staff member and an OEG staff member, they will canoe each day, they are in tents each night and will be cooking group meals together.
