The Avon Descent is over for 2019, check back next year for details of the 2020 Avon Descent and Family Fun Days.
Experience the excitement of the world's greatest white water event - the Avon Descent, held over the first weekend in August.
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. You can catch all the action during the Family Fun Days taking place along the River from Northam to Belmont.
