Kayaking provides the opportunity to explore the wetlands at a slow and tranquil pace. The Murray and Loddon Rivers or the many lakes are the perfect waterways to get close to nature, paddling in the dappled summer light, shaded by river redgums.

Bring your canoe or kayak and make your way along the waters to Safe’s Lagoon on the Gunbower Island Canoe Trail at Gunbower Creek. A 5km canoe trail (an easy two-hour paddle) has been established through the wetland. Here you can see birds nesting in the hollows of standing dead trees. You can hear their calls and see the myriad of creatures living among the reeds and waters. The route to the canoe trail is signposted off the highway as you head to Koondrook.

Our comprehensive Kayak/Canoe brochure features trails and information on all of our wetlands and lakes, giving you several unique paddling options.

The brochure includes description of the various trails and highlights the many waterways suitable for paddling. A useful paddle safety guide is included along with a map to help you around the region.
