Accommodation Suggestions:


Night of Day ZERO - Best to stay at Yarrawonga or Tocumwal

The teams that stay in Tocumwal for TWO nights really love not having to change accommodation. These teams do have an additional drive back from the OPENING CEREMONY and getting to the DAY ONE Start, however maybe this is a good compromise for your team.

Night of Day ONE - Your only choice is Tocumwal

Night of Day TWO - many of the larger teams stay at the PICNIC POINT Camp Ground (finish of Day Two and Start of Day Three)

Lots of other paddlers would rather take the drive into MOAMA or ECHUCA, as there is a larger choice of accommodation and places to eat. The drive from Picnic Point to Moama is about 40 minutes; it does mean a very early wake up for Day Three Start.

Night of Day THREE - Moama or Echuca is best - The 2024 start is scheduled to be at MOAMA BEACH.

Night of Day FOUR - When we finish at TORRUMBARRY and the Day Five Start is in Gunbower is an 17km drive. We highly recommend staying in Gunbower, Cohuna, Koondrook, Barham or even in Kerang.

Night of Day FIVE - When you arrive tired into KOONDROOK, we strongly encourage that you stay a night or two in town. There is a lot of accommodation and wonderful restaurants in KOONDROOK / BARHAM.
