Stand Up Paddle Boarding comes to Victoria Park Lake

Looking for adventure, fun and exercise this Summer? Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP) has arrived at Shepparton’s Victoria Park Lake.

Greater Shepparton City Council has 15 Stand Up Paddle Boards available for hire at $20 each for 45 minutes, with residents and visitors now given the opportunity to see if they can glide across the surface of Victoria Park Lake without falling in!

Greater Shepparton City Council CEO and avid canoeist Peter Harriott, is pleased to see the local waterway being activated in this way and is looking forward to trying out his skills on the boards.

“Fortunately you don’t need any paddling experience to hire a paddle board, just the ability to swim confidently and a want to have a good time.”

“Stand Up Paddle Boarding is one of the fastest growing sports around the world and now you can enjoy working on your balance in a safe, calm environment as you explore the beauty of our local lake,” Mr Harriott said.

Included in the SUP hire is a 10 foot 6 inch Stand Up Paddle Board, leg rope, paddle and lifejacket.

Bookings can be made online now by visiting www.getmoovingshepparton.com.au/sup and are available for individuals as well as school, community and corporate groups.
