Welcome to Tinaroo Canoe Club, home of the Barron River Challenge
Tinaroo Canoe Club is a local recreation club based on the Atherton Tablelands in Far North Queensland. We have a small number of active members who participate in regular river kayaking and canoeing when river heights allow. Members also coordinate an active Canoe (Kayak) Polo Competition. Paddlers meet weekly in Mareeba during the warmer months skill sessions and friendly competition.
The Tinaroo Canoe Club runs the Barron River Challenge – known as the BRC 50 (an open river race over 52km), the BRC12 (a junior and open race over 12km) and the BRC20 (an open race over the first 20 km of full race). 2018 will see the 8th running of this race on the 12th & 13th May. The race is becoming more popular each year since its inception in 2011.
