Welcome to Tinaroo Canoe Club, home of the Barron River Challenge

Tinaroo Canoe Club is a local recreation club based on the Atherton Tablelands, North Queensland. Our active members participate in regular river kayaking when water levels allow, as well as kayaking and canoeing on local dams and lakes. 

The 12th Barron River Challenge will be held on 27-28 May 2023. The Challenge is a down river race where paddlers can choose to compete on  20km, 30km or 50km sections of the Barron River between Mareeba and Kuranda. Juniors (16+) and/or Open paddlers may enter in single or double craft. Relay ‘Teams of 4’ provide the perfect platform for groups of friends to develop paddling skills over less enduring distances.

Registrations open March 8th and close May 20th.
