This route has to be one of the best along the Ovens River with its rich flora and fauna, amazing river vistas and a real feeling that you are far away from the crowds.  The river twists and turns and is in a very natural state which helps to provide a rich environment and one that makes you feel that you are amongst nature.


River Tribe describes this stretch of river as un-touched, slightly adventurous but safe as long as you follow the rules of the river. Above all it is an intimate section of river with trees over-hanging and when you stop and take a look the river is full of life, it is alive with a menagerie of life not often seen, it feels healthy, natural, relaxing yet invigorating.
