PADDLES TO THE READY! #Floatfest18 is coming!

A two day event proudly instigated by the members of the Murraylands Regional Tourist Association, to encourage you to visit our wonderful Region, and experience life by the River.

Floatfest is a family focused event attempting to break a World record Attempt to gather the largest number of floating kayaks and canoes by “Paddling into the Record Books”. The weekend also encompasses fun for the kids with “Come and try” canoeing, Houseboats open for inspection, lots of fun and activities for all, stalls, markets, regional food, and much, much more.

We want to get as many canoes and kayaks on the Murray River at Murray Bridge as possible on Sunday the 8th of April 2018, and put this region into the Record Books. We are encouraging individuals, families and groups from anywhere in the world to get involved.
