Thanks to Hydro Tasmania, Paddle Week 2021 will be happening between the 16th and 26th of January 2021. The exact rivers, flows, dates and times shown in the table above may be modified closer to the date. If anyone is interested in additional rivers (for instance having the Mersey running on the Cataract Days), and can nominate as the call-in / call-out person, then please contact Geoff Macqueen : geoffmacqueen@hotmail.com

If your going to participate we ask you to register. Why? So that we get an understanding of the number of people who attend occasions like this that Hydro has made possible. It would be great to let them know just how many folk take advantage of these releases and enjoy a great day out. Having the numbers allows us to lobby for more recreational paddling.

Registrations are now open
