In early Spring and late Autumn, we challenge ourselves with a range of grade one, two and three white water rapids through the gorge at Bright - starting our trip by meeting near the Ovens River footbridge, where we allocate rafts, rig with life jackets and helmets etc, and car shuttle your vehicles to the pull-out point.
We then kayak down river learning how to negotiate the rapids as we go, finally finishing our trip at Ashwood Avenue. A great adventure suitable for those looking for an achievable challenge. Suitable for 13 years plus.
Two leaders, all safety equipment (helmet, lifejacket, etc.), kayaks and paddles.

I went on a recent adventure with my family on Mount buffalo, we did the caving on the Underground River. Amazing. I felt safe, and looked after the entire time as I was a little nervous about caving. My family loved it, and seeing the glow worms was awesome. I would HIGHLY recommend going on an adventure with these guys. It was so much fun.
Excellent experience for me and my 10yo son. Mercedes was our guide in abseling in Beechworth, near Gorge Rd, she is positive, experienced guide, encouraging us to give it a go. Thank you, we look forward to more adventures with you in the future
My entire experience with Adventure Guides Australia was amazing! Guides go the extra mile to make all of the tours: abseiling, underground river caving and white water rafting, both fun and safe. Thanks very much David, Brad and team!
We had a great time with our guides David and Sarita with our Kayaking @Ovens river, Bright, VIC today. They were very professional and helped us enjoy our first time Kayaking. Highly recommend for beginners!
Awesome experience. Much better than expected. It was a real adventure, not just passing the time. Everything went well. Really nice people to deal with. Can’t recommend enough. If you want an adventure for a friction of a cost, this is the way to go. By yourself would take you years to get to this level.
