Only a handful of people have experienced the unique wonder of paddling down a stretch of the Blackwood River in Boyup Brook. Most of the year the river is suitable for beginner canoeists and young children. The peaceful stretches that meander through farming country allow you to immerse yourself in the magnificent flora and bird life on and along the river.
Take a picnic and stop off along the way. For the more adventurous, the river and surrounds are suitable for longer treks that incorporate camping at various spots along the way. Different sections of the river have been marked off to allow you to choose a suitable canoe trip. Refer to maps that are available at the Tourist Centre. Canoe hire is available at the Flax Mill Recreation Complex.
