Water-based activities

Let’s talk about the elephant in the room… You’re probably not gonna tow a boat twenty-five hundred klicks but you still want to see it all and get wet along the way. Don’t worry - we've got you.

There’s stops in your journey where you can cut through glassy water on a ski or wakeboard. Even better, you’ll a have pro on hand spitting tips at you no matter your skill level – yes, that means you can finally tell your know-it-all mate to stick it and actually land those Insta worthy tricks.

Hair on end at the thought of being pulled along by a boat? That’s fine too – there’s still much love to give the river and lakes along this road. Go slow with a SUP, canoe or kayak. Go slower with a lunch cruise, barbie barge or oven an over-nighter on a paddlesteamer.

Still not sold? There’s plenty of swimming spots you’ll come across and legendary fish to catch. C’mon, how can you resist?
