High River Levels and Paddling on Flooded Rivers

Paddle Victoria would like to issue a general safety warning out to all Paddlers, our Members and Clubs, about the current river levels and the rivers flowing above their usual levels.
All paddlers and non paddlers are to take additional care when on or around waterways in Victoria at the moment.

Paddle Victoria, recommend that all Discipline Committees and Clubs assess all events and programs prior to being run and complete a risk assessment before each outing/event
