Access arrangements

Access just before the agricultural land on the road on the west of the river. Egress.
Get off just next to the bridge above the gorge.


There is nothing serious anywhere on this section. It consists mainly of big waves and a few good
play holes. The main attraction is an excellent play wave/stopper on river left above the bridge. We
didn’t run the gorge but have been reliably informed that it is mainly flat.
