Avon Descent

Experience the excitement of the world's greatest white water event at the Avon Descent- a 124km race through some of Western Australia's most picturesque scenery on 5 & 6 August.

This incredible race takes paddlers and power craft drivers down the Avon River through the historic farming regions of Northam and Toodyay, the steep and spectacular gorges of the Avon Valley, Swan Valley wineries and eventually into the tidal waters of the Swan River. For more information visit

Avon Descent Family Fun Days

The Avon Descent Family Fun Days are a series of family-orientated events held annually, alongside the race and are a perfect opportunity for family and friends to get outdoors and experience the excitement of the race. Find out more about the Avon Descent and the family fun days below.
