  Paddlers leave the river at Burrekup Weir (background) to paddle to the take-out which is on an irrigation channel

 

  Floating down the irrigation channel.

 

  Often you have to float upside down to get under this bridge and bad luck if you can't roll.

 

 The take-out: a helping hand is needed here as the water is moving.
