Honestly, there is just no better way to enjoy a hot summers day than by floating down the Yarra River on your very own River Sled.

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 balancing skills by standing up in a deep pool of water.
