Puffin Paddle

One Man. One Brother. One River


In an effort to raise funds for the PMF, James’ younger brother, Martin, will attempt to kayak the length of the Murray River from Albury-Wodonga on the NSW / Victorian border, to Goolwa, South Australia.

The Puffin Paddle will take 56 days to complete and will commence on 1 November this year-hopefully Martin will finish on time and make it home for Christmas with James and his family.

Martin will paddle constantly, in rain, hail or shine, making the grueling journey along the 2,200 km length of the Murray. It will be a journey driven by love of one brother for another. It will also highlight the tragic state of a river, once Australia’s greatest, as it’s health is devastated by salinity, choked by carp, starved of environmental flows and bearing populations of dying river red gums.
