Avon Descent 2017

  • Bernard Park Minson Ave Northam, WA, 6401 Australia (map)

The Avon Descent is one of Western Australia’s oldest and greatest sporting events and attracts competitors and spectators from throughout Australia and the world. Avon Descenters challenge the Avon and Swan rivers in a variety of paddle and power craft in an exciting two-day time trial over 124 gruelling kilometres.

The Avon Descent was first held in 1973 with just 49 competitors, no rules, no officials, no checkpoints and very few spectators. In the years since, over 35,000 people have competed in the Avon Descent, from novices and families, to World Champions and Olympic competitors.

This year should prove even more exciting with recent rains!!
