Whitewater fun on the Frankland

Whitewater fun on the Frankland

Over the last month or so we have been spending a bit of time on the whitewater sections of the Frankland river just outside Walpole, the river provides some very scenic paddling combined with a variety of whitewater sections that will keep most kayakers and canoeists entertained, with the good amount of rain we get down in this direction it makes for an excellent venue for all of our whitewater paddling and rescue courses.

Just another good reason to get into the outdoors down south in the Denmark / Walpole area.

We are not the only ones who appreciate the Frankland river, below is a testimonial from one of our course participants,

Stuart of Adventure Training Consultants coached me in the introduction to white-water kayaking course in August 2015 on the Frankland River. Stuart is passionate about white-water kayaking and, I gather, all the outdoor activities in which he participates. At all times I felt I was being coached to a level suitable for my skills and experience. I felt safe while being challenged to step outside my comfort zone and at the same time we could have a laugh. I have no doubt about Stuart’s competence as a kayaking instructor. When I tested Stuart’s rescue and recovery skills on several occasions, Stuart came through with “flying colours” and with good cheer. Finally, the Frankland River is a world class river. To kayak through stunning Karri and Tingle forest is truly unique. A “must do”.”
