Somerset Day Adventure Package

A 2 hour walk with the adorable Llamas from Ottaba Lllamas on the Brisbane Valley Rail Trail, followed by a 2 hour paddle on the Brisbane River with One Tree Canoe Company. Minimum bookings - 2 people. Subject to availability on the day


Beginners Moving Water Experience

A 3 hour down river paddle on the Upper Brisbane River between One Tree Canoe and Savages Crossing. Suitable for novice paddlers with reasonable levels of fitness. Introduces paddlers to moving water and a whole lot of FUN!!! Includes Canoe Hire and Shuttles



Our Factory and Hire Centre is located on a farm in the Vernor District, halfway between Fernvale and Lowood.  We have direct river access via our private launch site onto the stretch of water between Twin Bridges and Lowood Bend.

We offer canoe hire from our farm, or if you prefer you can take canoes away for paddling at another location.  All you need is a car with standard roof racks.  If you don’t have racks we can fit soft roof racks to most standard 4 door cars.

Canoe Shuttle Service

Regular paddlers know that the biggest problem with down river paddling is organising shuttles between the launch and exit sites.  Having cars that are capable of carrying multiple craft is rare so shuttling back and forwards is necessary to get everyone on and off the river.  Look no further, we have the solution!

One Tree Canoe offers a local shuttle service for Wivenhoe Dam and the Upper Brisbane River (Spillway to Kholo).  Pricing is based on delivery to and from our farm at Vernor and is $30 each way per car load.  Our trailer can transport up to 7 craft at a time (max length 18ft).

We can also pick and drop to Somerset Dam, O’Shea’s Crossing and the Bremer River if required – price on application.
