The Black Swan Canoe, Kayak and SUP Race

General Events , Sporting Events At Gunbower Racing Club Dormoyle Rd, Gunbower VIC 3566, Australia

Saturday 28th March

10:00am - 5:00pm

The Black Swan, is a 46km paddling race along the narrow and tightly winding Gunbower Creek.

The race starts from Felix L’Huillier Park in Gunbower, Victoria and finishes at Cohuna, Victoria in Apex Park. The race is open to individual paddlers or relay teams in kayak, canoe, stand up paddleboard or outriggers.


This unique race is going to be a lot of fun and to win, you will need to have a lot of turning skills and strategy in very narrow conditions. The creek has very little flow however there are several obstacles; a short 'white water' fish weir, three bridges, that depending on the creek height, you will get to go under or over and it also has a main weir that definitely requires a portage. There is a main channel, however the creek is full of tree stumps and low hanging branches to make it all that more interesting.

The race will start at 10am and racers must be off the water by 5pm, so there will be 2 cut off times strictly enforced at Wee Wee Rup at 2.30pm and Dalton's Bridge at 3.30pm and the presentation will be held at the tavern in Cohuna at about 6pm.

Stage 1 - 12km; Stage 2 - 11km; Stage 3 - 8km; Stage 4 - 15km
