Guided Sunset Kayak Tour

3 Kayakers on the water, enjoying watching the sun set.

Kayak Tour at Sunset: A great time to be on the water

Sunset & Sunrise are magical times for a kayak tour on the river.  That’s when the waters are often mirror-flat, the reflections are magical, the birdlife is most active, the air is deliciously cool andP1080417 - Copy - Copy fresh and the silence and solitude soothe the soul.

Our Guided Sunset Kayak Tour is a pleasant introduction to kayaking, requiring no previous experience.  Kayak Tours offer a variety of scenery, letting you enjoy the beautiful wetlands of Gurra Gurra Creek, the evening colours of the magnificent sandstone Bookpurnong cliffs and the mystery of exploration as we navigate the Ajax Achilles Lakes, where we can almost guarantee that the Kangaroos will be there to watch you pass.

Our Sunset Tours begin by meeting at the Berri Visitor Information Centre, or at your local accommodation, and travelling by car (about 5 mins) to the beginning of our trip, where we unload, fit PFD’s (“life jackets”) and get onto the water. Along the way we have a look at some barge wrecks from the time of the building of Lock 4 and its weir, plenty of birdlife including pelicans, darters, cormorants, terns and parrots, as well as the kangaroos and cliffs mentioned above. We take a break along the way for a cuppa, and to enjoy the sun setting across the water.

We do a one-way trip, so you get to enjoy new scenery for the whole route, and don’t have to paddle with the setting sun in your eyes. With a number of different possible pick-up points at the end of the trip, you are under no pressure to “make it to the end” – you can take is as slowly or quickly as you like.
