Guided Sunset Kayak Tour

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 and 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.

How does a Sunset Kayak Tours run?

Our Guided Sunset Kayak 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 a snack of local produce, and to enjoy the sun setting across the water.

Our trip is a one-way adventure, so you can soak up all the amazing views without squinting into the setting sun.  And the best part? There are various pick-up spots at the end of the journey so you don’t have to worry about rushing to the end.  Take your time, enjoy the ride and go as fast or slow as you like.
