The Avon Descent – a spectacular 124 km race over two days through some of Western Australia’s most picturesque scenery. This incredible race takes paddlers and power craft drivers down the Avon River through the historic farming regions of Northam and Toodyay, the steep and spectacular gorges of the Avon Valley, Swan Valley wineries and eventually into the tidal waters of the Swan River. The Avon Descent tests the endurance and skills of the fittest athlete.
All the action for 2019 kicks off in Northam with the Visit Northam Avon River Festival on Friday the 2nd.
