Dave was very accommodating. We broke up the trip between Melbourne and Canberra by stopping into Albury to kayak. Dave rented us two and took us up river for a nice paddle/restful trip downstream in two hours.

We were dropped off and given some key pointers on traversing the Murray back to the centre of Albury (meeting point). It was just two of us in 1 man kayaks which were in great condition, the weather was great and we did minimal paddling...More
