About Peel Region Canoe Trails
There are two trail options - both around 20 to 30 kilometres which will take 3 to 4 hours depending on how far and how fast you paddle. These can be combined to create a longer trip.
The Serpentine River Trail, which includes the Peel Inlet and Mandurah Estuary, is an easy half-day paddle which takes you past beautiful natural bushland, historical sites and new and old developments including the Mandurah Foreshore.
The 24km Murray River Trail commences in Pinjarra and finishes alongside the King Carnival in Mandurah. The reverse journey is also easily achievable depending on the time of year and river flow.
Specific interests of the trail include the historical Cooper Mill, Old Mandurah Bridge, Pinjarra Station and Hotham Valley Railway. There are various indigenous heritage sites along the trail and beautiful native flora and fauna including black swans, dolphins and blue manna crabs. The views across the Peel Estuary and the Mandurah foreshore are beautiful.
Current water conditions are available by phoning Department of Water on 08 9550 4222. Also check the weather forecast, especially if paddling in more exposed wind and wave conditions such as the inlet and estuary.
The trails form a part of Western Australia's canoe trails network, with a number of maps being developed for other trails, including the Warren River, Blackwood River and Frankland & Deep Rivers.
