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.
Hire Rates for canoes are $30 for 3 hours or $60 for 24 hours.
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. We can transport up to 7 craft at a time (max length 17ft).
We will also pick and drop to Somerset Dam, O’Shea’s Crossing and the Bremer River if required. Please contact us for pricing.
Canoe Go Paddling
We don’t run formal tours as yet, but have an informal meetup group running aimed specifically at canoe paddling.
Check out Canoe Go Paddling on meetup.
Canoe hire is $30 per canoe when hired through this group.
