One of the more exciting aspects of this year is that we are running a Junior(U18) and Novice Time Trial / Boater Cross on the Slalom Gorge to get more people involved. (Who don’t feel comfortable racing on the Top Section )

Also we have our very own Paddock at Mclaren Falls Park for camping and an epic little dance party!

We ask everybody after completing the Time Trial Qualification on the Top Section to come hang out and support the Juniors and Novices at the Slalom Gorge. As we will need help with Demonstration runs, Safety, Carrying Kayaks back to the top and Cheerleading! There will be a free sausage sizzle and plenty of drinking water provided so no excuses not to come support the young rippers!!
