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, skill level and boat types. (minimum age 16).  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.

Unfortunately, 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!
