We were picked up from our hotel timely by Australian proprietors, Kim and Russell, and we collected the kayaks from Kim and Russell’s home on the way to the starting point for the tour. Kim is also a florist who grows her own flowers and we... More

I booked the river kayaking experience for Bruce and I. I had limited experience, having only taken up kayaking a couple of months ago on Lake Macquarie. Bruce had quite a lot more experience but wasn't going to stop me. Kim picked us up right on time from our accommodation and proved to be a wealth of information. It was... More
