Words from our customers

What I got from this camp is so much more than how to paddle and sail. I learned how to learn.


The road will not teach you anything! People follow the road because it’s easy but it’s not necessarily the way to go. Because you might not learn new things, see new things or have as much fun. More opportunities come when you step outside your comfort zone and try new things. That’s why we should walk off the road.


Pat really enjoyed the experience and has come back a different kid.

Matt Watts

I had a splendid day paddling with Up The Creek! Luca is a very passionate guide, he added to the experience and made it unforgettable! I would definitely recommend.


I have come away in awe of the efforts of some of our kids, so proud of what they have achieved and inspired by Luna's influence in taking them to the edge of their comfort zone so they can learn in a way they never have before.


Hi Derek, I thought you’d like this one. Earlier in the week I was teaching ... students were very reluctant to think..... when they started to think one student said ‘Oh man!! This is just like Up The Creek’ Bingo!! Best compliment I’ve had in ages. I really enjoy the way you’ve made me think about my teaching.

Head Up The Creek on a  sailing, paddling or camping adventure and make lifelong memories with nature.


Make mindful memories

If we stand for anything, it’s making people more conscious of their surrounds. Because we tend to value what we notice. And we only notice things when we’re connected, living in the moment, making memories that’ll last a lifetime.

Journeys with impact

As part of our commitment to sustainability, we’ve partnered with environmental regeneration projects like the Yarra Riverkeeper Association. When we talk about collaborating with nature, this is what we mean: leaving the place better than we found it.
