Western Australia is a dry state, but it does have some navigable
rivers with reliable water levels. The Avon River, for example, which
flows to Perth, offers good paddling can be enjoyed on the Murray River
where it cuts through the ranges near Dwellingup.
Other destinations in the south-west include the Warren, Deep and Blackwater
Rivers. Trips to rivers in the north of the state, such as the Ord, Fitzroy and
Murchison, require careful planning, not only because of the length of the
rivers but also because of the difficulties involved in getting on and off the
water in remote locations.
