Kayaking and canoeing around Melbourne
With everything from short, gentle kayak tours of the Docklands area and the Yarra to multi-day adventures further afield, including Wilsons Promontory, Seakayak Australia is bound to have something to catch your interest. The company will also hire out all gear if you want to head out on your own.
Adventure Canoeing runs popular canoeing and kayaking tours and hires gear on the upper Yarra River at Warrandyte, on Melbourne’s north-eastern outskirts. If you go for a two-hour paddle or an overnight excursion you are likely to spot koalas, kangaroos and plenty of birds as you travel through Warrandyte State Park. The company also offers whitewater canoeing and whitewater rafting. You can do a one-day trip on the King River, a two-day trip on the Mitta Mitta or join a group expedition to the Mitchell or Snowy rivers in the east of the state.
