One trail, many different levels

The are plenty of places to drive in and enjoy the Canoe and Kayak trail at any level of experience, from splashing in the shallows at Cangai to grade 4 paddling at various waterfalls along the trail. Overall the Clarence Canoe & Kayak Trail is not a beginners’ river! It is a grade 2-3 whitewater trail with some sections containing rapids of grade 4 difficulty. There are also three COMPULSORY portages for all paddlers: one at Nymboida Weir (refer to Section 2 Trip Detail); and one each at Rainbow Falls and Willow Tree Falls in The Gorge (refer to Section 6 Trip Detail). The low-level bridges at Cangai (refer Section 5 Trip Detail) and Lilydale (refer to Section 7 Trip Detail) are also likely to be COMPULSORY portages for all paddlers at all except very low river levels. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that paddlers with novice or intermediate skill levels also portage: Cunglebung Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, and New Zealand Falls – all grade 4 rapids; and Demolition Derby – a technical Grade 3 rapid (refer to Section 4 Trip Detail) for safety reasons.
