The Taylor Inlet paddle trail is 3km loop paddle in a beautiful secluded Inlet located at Nanarup Beach east of Albany. The inlet is surrounded by saltwater paperbark and rushes providing habitat for many native species of fauna.

At most times the inlet is closed to the ocean and provides a sheltered paddling experience. Take the opportunity to paddle around the edge of the inlet and up the small tributaries for a more challenging experience.

Best accessed via Nanarup Beach, a very popular 4 wheel driving location. Taylor inlet is a small secluded inlet, popular for waterbirds. Small but beautiful.

Trails are free and bring so many benefits to our community by providing opportunities to have fun, get fit, socialise, explore and challenge yourself. But they also have to be managed and maintained which only is made possible through terrific sponsors, donations and/or volunteering.
