About 5 day Kayak Adventure down Hawkesbury River

Book Direct with the Owner at 5 day Kayak Adventure down Hawkesbury River with Accommodation Australia in Sydney, for all your Attraction and travel needs.

Get properly wild on this 5-day kayaking expedition down one of the world’s great Rivers. 60 km from Berowra Valley, past Marramarra Creek, onto the mighty Hawkesbury River, by Cowan Creek, into Pittwater, through Broken Bay, and out to the Tasman Sea and Pacific Ocean.

Choose your adventure - stay in waterfront cabins and dine on decadent degustations, or camp by the river and eat in the wild. All food and equipment and instruction provided. No experience necessary – all you need is an intrepid spirit and a sense of adventure!

5 days is a fairly relaxed pace, with plenty of time to explore - it can easily be done in less if you prefer.

See shipwrecks, waterfalls, historic islands, indigenous sites, beautiful beaches and hike to breathtaking lookouts. Amazing waterfront restaurants (and pubs!) to enjoy on the way if you like. This is Guringgai Country, where people have lived for thousands of generations.

Unplug from the world and reconnect with Nature.
