The Paddle to Battle Depression

Due to COVID-19, we have rescheduled our 2021 Paddle to Battle Depression from 4 July to Sunday 31 October, and we’d love to see as many people as possible join us for a fun day on the Brisbane to raise funds for our important services that support Australians struggling with depression.

This year we’ve changed things up a little…

Instead of the long 35km paddle down Brisbane River, we’re making it more accessible to more people by shortening the distance to 20km.

And you can choose whether to race it and compete for the Paddle to Battle Depression Cup, or join the community paddle and take your time.

Both the 20km Race and 20km Community Paddle will start at Riverhills and end at Graceville.

The Community Paddle will kick off at 8am and the Race will start at 9am. Both are expected to be finished by midday.

You can paddle any suitable craft as an individual or double. Please note that if you plan to use a SUP, please use one over 12’ 6”.

Registration for both the Community Paddle and Race is $59 per person. For the cost of your registration, you’ll receive:

• Paddle to Battle Depression shirt

• BBQ lunch and drinks at the finish line

• Access to support boat on the river and assistance from event crew
