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.
