OUR TOUR BEGINS
With an introduction to our local tour guides. We issue lifejackets, give a short safety briefing and prepare you for the adventure ahead.
We provide a Courtesy 4WD vehicle to travel up river to begin the Canoe Safari adventure, and to return you safely to Kalbarri Boat Hire Homebase.
We hit the river’s edge and you choose your paddling crew, max of 3 adults per canoe.
We then give a quick demonstration on paddling techniques and what to look for on the river.
This is a self guided, and self paced trip and you can take your time at a relaxed pace.
Varying conditions can change at a moments notice, such as weather, tide and changes of the environment, so we have the right to change our scheduled Tour without compensation or justification. We may find it necessary to change the scheduling slightly on some Tours. This will be discussed at your safety briefing at the very start of your tour, however can change during the course of your tour at the Guides discretion. Your safety and well being is paramount.
The first section of your tour begins at Gregory's Rock. After teaming-up with your paddling partners, you hop onboard the Canoe's and begin your spectacular adventure of the Mighty Murchison River!
The first leg is approximately 3.5klm's of pristine river and rock formations, which will take approx 45mins to meander your way to Nanny Goat Well.
Watch out for plenty of Wildlife along the way.
On approach to Nanny Goat Well, your bellies will be spurred on and come to life after having smelt the amazing aroma of our famous BBQ breakfast/Lunch, cooked fresh by our very own Bush Cooks Adrian and Jason!
This is an all you can eat breakfast/lunch, underneath the gum trees, a spot especially chosen for its natural beauty.
Please let our guides know of any food allergies and preferences for cooking your breakfast.
Once your bellies are full you embark on your second leg of your paddle.
This is also approximately 45 minutes and 3.5klm distance. The ever changing river banks, rock formations and abundant wildlife will keep you entertained and eager for more as you continue along the way, pausing at your own pace to take in and capture those views!
Your next stop you'll pull into the river bank to be met by our local guides. This area is known by the locals as the Dance Floor. Legend has it that there used to be late night bush dancing here. We chose this spot as it has a lovely deep waterhole, here you can swim, cool off or relax on the river bank.
AFTER YOUR SWIM
Your final destination you'll be greeted by our Guide along the sandy river bank.
At this point the Canoes will be reloaded onto the vehicles, and your return 4WD journey back to homebase begins.
Relax, sit back and enjoy the scenery or share paddling stories with new found friends.
Once you feel refreshed, the Guide will discuss the option to complete the third and final leg of the Tour, weather & time permitting.
This is approximately 30min and 2 ½ km. On this section of the river you may see plenty of kangaroos, wallabies and goats coming down from the bush to have a drink at the river’s edge, and dont forget our famous Pelicans and Swans......
