Lower Murray Canoe Trail

Welcome to the Lower Murray Canoe Trail website, where you will find everything you need to know before heading out on your kayaking adventure.

The Coorong District Council was successful in receiving funding from Department of Environment, Water and Natural Resources through the Fund My Project - Riverine Recovery Program to develop a canoe trail between Tailem Bend and Wellington.

The trail is an adventurous way to explore the mighty murray river and learn more about the Riverine Environment and History, and trust us when we say that it will be a memorable experience that will have you wanting to do it again. It has been designed to be as interactive as possible through educational signage and geocaches featuring topics such as 1956 floods, ferries locks and weirs, native fish, birds, vegetation, and environmental water use. The 21km trail has been divided into four section to help you plan a safe kayaking journey. Depending on your skill, fitness and interest you may choose to do one or more sections of the trail.

Don't forget to jump on social media and follow us, you can find us by clicking on the tags below. Remember to share your trail journey with us by tagging 'Lower Murray Canoe Trail' for your chance to feature on our page.

Where to find your trail map?

Want to know the cool thing about our maps, not only are they waterproof but tear proof too, so while you're out on the water you don't have to worry about a soggy half torn map. We've got you covered and the best part is you can use them again and again!! Waterproof trail maps are available to collect from the Tailem Bend info Station and the Coorong Civic Centre located on Railway Terrace, Tailem Bend.
