Arthur River

Grade: 2-3
Time: 1 Week+
Get in: Farquhars Bridge via Takone West (C236), (Grid ref. CQ 703 400)
Get out: Arthur River Township

This river is suitable for relative novices with at least one experienced party member. It has a good deal of flat water and regular rapids up to grade 3. About 30 km after the Trowutta Bridge, the river enters a 10 km gorge with numerous small rapids. The Arthur River bridge at the coast follows a tiresome 14 km estuary. Campsites are plentiful and this trip could be included with Hellyer sections for a week long camping trip. The river can rise very quickly. Well equipped parties should have no trouble completing the trip without mishap. There are a number of exit points at the bridges if shorter trips are desired.
