It’s officially the start of the canoe season at Nitmiluk National Park.

Last week we launched our first canoes! You don’t have to be an experienced paddler to get in on the action. Enjoy the half day, full day or overnight canoeing adventures we have on offer.

Immerse yourself in a self-guided adventure through the spiritual Jawoyn Country. This is an extremely tranquil way to explore the surrounds at your own pace. Take in the diversity of the landscape where you might spot some local wildlife including birdlife, freshwater crocodiles and wallabies.

Take time to wade in the shallow pools between the gorges or pull up a rock and relax with your own picnic. The overnight canoeing adventure will allow you to go further into the gorge and discover more ancient Jawoyn rock art, waterfalls and swimming holes.

All canoe adventure tours begin with a scenic journey by boat through Nitmiluk’s first gorge before canoeists take to the waters to explore the second gorge and beyond.

Single or double canoes may be hired and participants are required to carry their canoes between gorges should they wish to go further than the second gorge.

Avoid disappointment and book ahead, as canoeing is extremely popular at this time of year. Contact (08) 8971 0877 or to reserve your canoe.

Happy paddling!
