Paestan Canoe Hire
based on
'The Bochara River'
has supplied canoe and kayak hire for over 28 years along the
'Glenlg River Canoe Trail'

Paestan Canoe Hire is owned and managed by Alicia and Ben Rentsch. They have a lifetime of experience on the Glenelg River and enjoy guiding others to experience the region they call home.

Embark on this scenic journey and take in the best the Lower Glenelg National Park has to offer.  Stretching from Dartmoor to Nelson, the Glenelg River Canoe Trail meanders through the lower reaches of the Glenelg River.

Known as Bochara to Gunditjmara people, Bugara to Wotjobaluk and Pawur to Boandik, the Glenelg River is a boundary and a connection for the three nations – Boandik to the west, Jadawadjali Clans of the Wotjobaluk Nation in the north, and Gunditjmara in the south and east.

The river system was a permanent source of food and resources through the seasons, as well as an important travel and trade route. Resources such as fish, eels, textiles and bush medicines are still collected today.

Paestan Canoe Hire acknowledges the Traditional Custodians of the land in which we walk, canoe and commune. We pay our respect to the Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander people today.
