After a strenuous morning canoeing or kayaking along the Myall River, you’ll be ready for a break at lunchtime. Engels Reach picnic area is a great place to pull up your canoe or kayak. Set on the edge of the eastern bank of the Myall River, it’s a quieter place than many other picnic areas in the park because you can only get there by boat. You might find you have it all to yourself.
Extend your trip overnight by camping at the nearby Brambles Green campground and in the morning take a walk along the Mungo walking track before setting off again.
