Enjoy a hot summers day by floating down the Upper Yarra River on your very own river sled. This stunning 3km stretch of the river meanders around bends and over gentle rapids. Some sections are nice and smooth and others will get your heart pumping (just a little). 

Depending on river levels at times you may need to help yourself along with a bit of paddling but, that’s all part of the fun. Once you get the hang of it try kneeling down a rapid or test out your balance skills by standing up in a deep pool of water. This is a great outdoor activity that the whole family can enjoy. 

River sleds are 2 metres long, weigh 4.4 kilos, have a handle for easy carrying, and are made of high grade PVC rafting material. They are the ultimate in comfort and durability and will help protect your shins and elbows from the occasional knocks and bumps as you float down the river.
