Ruth was a delight to paddle with and was very informative about the river ecosystem, wetlands management, birds, animals and fish. Very easy paddling, not strenuous at all. She also kindly rearranged our tour time without any fuss when bad weather rolled in, resulting in us being able to get on the river 2 days later but in completely perfect conditions, something that not all tour operators would do! Tour runs mostly through the side channels so you are off the main river with the houseboat / other boat traffic which is nice. Would highly recommend. Don’t forget a pair of binoculars, handy to look at some of the birds you see along the way. Ruth also runs the PS Julie Fay B&B which is a unique accommodation and experience not to be missed if you are looking for somewhere to stay!

Owners are super friendly and informative about the whole process. The water is fairly calm and easy to paddle and navigate. As an added bonus, the mandarins we were given were probably the best I'd ever eaten. Definitely recommend to anyone travelling to Renmark.

We spent a lovely day canoeing on the Riverland. It was very easy to navigate our way around through the channels. Our 9 year old son had no problems paddling for almost 3 hours: for the rest of the time we towed him along. We saw fantastic bird life and had a few close fish encounters. The canoes were well maintained and Jim is very helpful. I thoroughly recommend this to anyone.

This is the most relaxing place to stop and unwind. A photographers paradise with wild life at every bend. The Julie Fay is the ideal getaway for couples to relax We spent 5 days exploring all of the backwaters by kayak. Ruth and Jim are the perfect hosts and we hope to visit again soon BushPhotos
