Overview

Leaving from Kalbarri Boat Hire, for your adventure, you will be taken 15km up the Murchison River to Gregory Rocks in a OKA 4WD. Here you will begin your 4km paddle down the river to Nanny Goat Well. You will be met here by your guide for the best bush breakfast in town. With your appetite satisified, you will then continue down the river to the Dance Floor. This is a great swimming hole where we regroup for the last leg of the paddle.After the last leg you will be collected by the guide and brought back to Kalbarri. This is a fantastic family outing and recommended for all age groups.

While holidaying in Kalbarri we completed the Lunch time half day Canoe Safari with our guide Dan. What a fabulous experience, amazing scenery and an easy paddle for a family of 5. We split between 2 canoes, and the paddle was easy enough to complete...More

Took myself, 9yr old son and 11 yr old daughter not the river. Awesome breakfast, great spot of the world to canoe, even with a decent headwind. Thanks Dan for the great cook up.

Dan was terrific, and cooks a great brekky. I enjoyed the 4wding and liked that it was a self guided tour for the canoes. So beautiful out on the water. Thanks! Taylor B

Great morning with Dan started with a 4 wheel drive trip up the river. Then canoeing and a huge breakfast. Lots of birds on the river a few goats and wallabies on the banks.

A brilliant way to see the river, fish, picnic and get to Castle Rock. We took the Tinnie boat hire for a 4 hour cruise, the boats have plenty of room, a Bimini to protect from the sun and a 6 Hp outboard motor, NO...More

They advertise this activity as suitable for all fitness levels. We were a little daunted as senior folk with the expectation of a 10k paddle. Our doubts were unfounded
