The Moruya Kayaking Trail passes through the historic town of Moruya. The trail is up to 38 kilometres, but is very flexible.
They suggest you launch at North Head campground, where dolphins are often spotted leaping through the water. Alternatively, launch at the Moruya boat ramp in Riverside Park where, on Saturday mornings, you can experience the rural markets.
Turn left two kilometres east of Moruya Bridge for a trip, at high tide, up Ryan’s Creek to see the mangroves and unique granite boulders.
On the western leg of the journey the river winds through farming land and forest where kangaroos hop along the banks. Start at the Moruya Bridge and paddle 12 kilometres west up to the bridge on Araluen Road. From here the river winds through the Deua River Valley. The bushland on this stretch abundant with birdlife, creating a magical atmosphere.
Checking maps and conditions is recommended.
