The slalom site is on the Forth River. It is located approximately 8 km south from the township of Forth. The district is full of beautiful countryside.

The slalom course is located on a small rapid with lots of features. The Tasmanian Canoe Club has a great clubhouse located on the site and there is 3 acres of camping on the river side.

5. What is the whitewater like?
The course is made up of relatively easy whitewater along many features which make it really interesting. There is a fun stopper to learn how to paddle in and around stoppers. The slalom course is 3 km below the Paloona Hydro dam and there is an easy river trip down from the dam.
