  • What to Pack?

    SAFE KAYAK AND SNORKELLING TIPS All sites require kayak and snorkelling experience. It is your responsibility to ensure your experience is suitable for the site. If in doubt don’t go out. Check the local weather conditions prior to your activity. Kayak with a friend to enhance the enjoyment and safety of your kayaking adventure. Carry adequate water, food, sunscreen and sun protection. Some return journeys may take up to four hours so you will be exposed to the elements for a significant time. Ensure your kayak has a suitable attachment to securely attach to the kayak mooring, as well as the ability to safely secure your gear (e.g. paddle) while snorkelling. Please ensure your kayak is seaworthy and has the required safety equipment aboard as most of these sites are more than 400 metres from shore. The required safety equipment includes life jacket, flares and a bailer (if not self draining) − see the Department of Transport Paddle Safe brochure. Always ensure someone knows where you are, and your estimated time of return. Remember to let them know when you have returned safely. Once at the site, assess the currents prior to entry − it is recommended to snorkel into the current at the beginning of your snorkel to enable an easy return to the mooring. The moorings hold a maximum of ten kayaks at any one time. For further information contact the Milyering Visitor Centre on (08) 9949 2808
