First-time kayaking without a group - perfect for beginners. Such a calm, relaxing, and re-energising experience.

Done this trail in various parts, not in one go. But one of my favourites. Serene and tranquil. Plenty of wildlife, pelicans, ducks, birds, waterhens etc. Not to mention Lo-Quay cafe, Kent St cafe or picnic spote. Great spot too for wildlife photography. (

I love this easy access canoe mostly because there are no motor craft in the river here and there are lots and lots of birds nesting along the banks in trees. The car park is close to launch sites and well lit at night. There is a great cafe and the wonderful canning river eco education centre during the day. It is about a 7 km round trip up to near the Shelley bridge where you can reward yourself at another cafe.
