The AJ Hackett Big Gorge Shoot Out - Crystal Cascade, Saturday the 24th of march from 9am
Watch on as white water kayakers disregard all respect for self preservation as they race head to head down a 1 km section of the steep creek gorge known as Crystal cascades. They will be racing head to head down this intense, tight, narrow steep creek. Competitors will encounter 10 major class 4 to 5 rapids over a 1 km section of creek. This will be not only a very intense race for competitors, but visually spectacular for spectators as there is a large footpath that runs the entire length of the creek with viewing vantage points of all the major rapids.
You do not want to miss out on seeing this.
There may even be some waterfall demonstrations at the top of the river throughout the day. You will have to be there to see it though.
