Bundeena Paddle

  • Sea Breeze Ln Royal National Park, NSW, 2232 Australia (map)

A full day in kayaks, exploring the bays and beaches of Port Hacking.

This trip will suit people with good fitness and some upper body strength. Starting and finishing at Bundeena, we plan to paddle at least 12 kilometres over the day. Contact Rick to ask about a spot including kayak hire, or one where you bring your own gear. No paddling experience is required, however all participants must be able to swim and be in reasonably fit condition.

We’ll keep a fluid plan, but we've discussed heading toward Audley with options to explore South West Arm, Warrumbul and perhaps even Swallow Rock Reserve. Whatever happens, there's plenty of options for a great day on the water.

Travel to meet the Hike Out crew at Bonnie Vale Picnic Area in Bundeena. Save on park entry fees by meeting other participants and car-pooling into the national park. See this Google map.
