Only an hour away from Sydney, you’ll swim at deserted beaches, bush walk to stunning outlooks and discover Aboriginal art and engravings carved in rocks with a small tour group when we explore Pittwater and Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park by land and by water! This full day guided tour includes both bushwalking and kayaking and is perfect for the experience seeker looking for an Australian, authentic adventure. Look for fairy penguins, goannas, galahs, cockatoos and wallabies calling Pittwater home among the gumtrees of this Australian national park. Double sit on top kayaks are provided and guests must be able to kayak for about 5 hours but we do take breaks! Morning tea & lunch is served picnic style on beaches along the western foreshore of the national park. At the end of our adventure, tired and happy, walk away with treasured memories!
What You'll Get
After meeting at our marina location, we drive approximately 30 minutes to Ku-ring-gai Chase National Park to the West Head Outlook, a panoramic outlook looking at Palm Beach and Lion Island and begin our adventure with a 2 hour bush walk on rough park trails to a secluded beach where our kayaks are waiting. Along our bush walk, we will learn about Aboriginal culture, early Australian history and observe seasonal wildlife and bushland, as well as inspect Aboriginal engravings, paintings and shelters. Led by our experienced guides, we will begin our first two hour paddle along the coast from the northern end of Pittwater, along the rocky escarpments and to Portuguese beach, where we enjoy a picnic style lunch and a quick swim. Packing up, we continue our kayaking adventure around Long Nose Point, Scotland Island and Morning Bay and paddle into secluded Lovett Bay where we explore the mangroves at Salvation Creek. Next up is a beachside stop at a sheltered cove for an afternoon tea of cheese, dips and crackers with a chocolate treat where we can either go for a short bush walk to Lovett Bay waterfall or take another refreshing swim. Our final one hour paddle brings us back to our marina location, tired but happy!
