River Rambles are social paddles designed for female social paddlers.  They consist of both general public and inter-club social paddling activities for women of all ages, (minimum age 16), skill level and boat types. The objective is to provide opportunities to get out on the water in a friendly, social and safe manner and in the company of women lead by qualified female Ramble Leaders.  Registrations are essential.

If the weather is bit ordinary Paddle Victoria will also provide a good pair of thermals and a spray jacket to keep you warm. We aim to have no swims during the sessions unless you volunteer – BUT you will get wet.  Splashing, wet feet and a wet butt is inevitable.

We are no longer able to provide reduced prices for multiple bookings, but please spread the word and get your friends together for a fun day out on the water!

If you have any signs or symptoms of a cold, sore, throat, runny nose, fever, upset stomach, dry cough, loss of taste or smell, shortness of breath, please ensure you CANCEL your participation and stay home for the safety and wellbeing of other participants, club members and Paddle Victoria Staff.
