As a dry state, South Australia has no whitewater rivers, but there is plenty of scope for canoe touring, particularly on the Murray River and its tributaries. Chowilla and Ral Ral Creeks, which flow into the Murray close to the border with New South Wales and Victoria, are good locations for this kind of backwater exploration. Similar but more popular is the two-day paddle along Katarapko Greek near Loxton, which passes through dense stands of red gums thronging with birdlife. The Glenelg River on the South Australia - Victoria border is another scenic waterway favoured by canoeists. The major event on South Australia’s canoeing calendar is the Red Cross Murray Marathon from Yarawonga to Swan Hill, which covers a distance of 310 miles. Lasting five days, it draws entrants form all over Australia.
