Myall Classic – Weekend Trip

16 – 17 September 2023, 

The Myall Classic is a major event on the NSW paddling calendar. It is held on the Myall River at Tea Gardens each September on the last Saturday before the school holidays, taking both competitive and recreational paddlers on a return course up the Myall River, covering 12, 27 or 47 kms.  Participants can choose from a variety of age categories, in either kayak, canoe (singles or doubles) and SUP. Due to its protected nature, the Myall Classic is a safe, scenic event in the largely unspoilt Great Lakes Marine Park. The event provides a challenge for competitive paddlers while welcoming novices. It is a good opportunity to connect with fellow paddlers and exchange experiences. With numerous lakes, rivers, islands and white sandy beaches the area offers numerous splendid paddling opportunities.
