Join an NPWS guide on an easy canoe trip along beautiful Bournda Lagoon in Bournda National Park. You'll be paddling one of the most picturesque waterways of the Sapphire Coast.
Previous canoeing experience is not required. The waterway is calm and sheltered, making this the perfect family-friendly activity. Keep your eyes peeled for rock orchids, water dragons, kingfishers and the occasional sea eagle as you make your way across the lagoon.
Afterwards, why not enjoy a picnic lunch in the shade of the paperbarks before cooling off with a dip or taking a self-guided walk through the park.
Bring drinking water and snacks, and wear a hat, sunscreen, insect repellent and enclosed shoes.
