Learn about the fascinating varieties of wetland, forest and estuary birds, reptiles and fish that make this area their home. You'll paddle behind marine ecologists who will guide you along the Bonville Creek waterways. Make sure you keep an eye out for birds perching high on branches over the water, and look for reptiles sunbaking along the estuary banks.

'Paddle our parks' is a guided program that gives Coffs Coast locals and visitors the opportunity to get on the water in safety, and to learn about why the Coffs Coast waterways are so special.

Previous canoeing experience is not required. It's a good idea to bring a picnic lunch, shady hat, sunscreen and drinking water.
