The Paddle Challenge was established in 2001 and has been a strongly supported event since the very beginning by paddlers of all levels. It has become one of the premier events on the Paddle WA Annual Calendar. Many Avon Descent paddlers regard the Paddle Challenge as a great event to kick off their training. The Paddle Challenge boasts a great carnival atmosphere – in the amphitheatre-like confines of AP Hinds Reserve, families can watch their friends and family out on the water.
