A great flat water paddle with protected edges in most wind conditions. Ideal for first time paddlers or kids out for a play on a kayak. Make sure to wash boats after you are finished as we need to stop a number of aquatic weeds from spreading.

Review Date: 30/11/2018

A very easy paddle in such a picturesque place. Get out on the water early to see an amazing sunrise and to catch plenty of freshwater Bass. Facilities available including parking, BBQ's grassed picnic areas and toilets. Enjoy a swim in the flagged area or take a walk along the bush track or the timber boardwalk enjoying the water views. Great day out!
