Fishing and water activities

If you are interested in experiencing the excitement of rafting or canoeing on the Murray, Mitta Mitta or Snowy Rivers, commercial tour operators can provide tours to suit your needs. Information about those can be found at the National Park and region visitor centers.

If you are organising your own trip, please obtain a copy of the River Users Code: Rafting and Canoeing in the Australian Alps national parks from your local park office.

No matter what kind of activities you enjoy in the Alps, you can minimise the impacts you have on the environment and other visitors by following some simple water safety rules. Remember to plan your trip.

Challenge yourself to leave as little trace of your visit as possible. Care for the Alps now – so they’ll be just as wonderful in the future.

Those with canoes, kayaks and rafts will have a great time in the Baw Baw National Park on the Thomson River.

The Mt Bogong region provides plenty of opportunities to get wet in the Bundarra River, the Mitta Mitta River and around Dartmouth Dam.
