Canoe Adventures day tours offer an extended look at the Loch Luna wetlands and Chamber’s Creek, exploring sections not seen on a half day tour. Loch Luna wetlands are rich in birdlife and beauty with towering stark gums contrasted against nature’s greenery. These maze-like, winding waterways are a delight to explore with surprises around each corner – a lake full of swans, eagles’ nests high in trees, aboriginal canoe trees, red cliffs and seasonally – creeks lined with yellow-flowering, floating water primrose. We will paddle at your pace, stopping to share lunch, morning/afternoon tea and a snack.Family Friendly Pet Friendly - Enquire
