Overview

Leaving from Kalbarri Boat Hire, for your adventure, you will be taken 15km up the Murchison River to Gregory Rocks in a OKA 4WD. Here you will begin your 4km paddle down the river to Nanny Goat Well. You will be met here by your guide for the best bush breakfast in town. With your appetite satisified, you will then continue down the river to the Dance Floor. This is a great swimming hole where we regroup for the last leg of the paddle.After the last leg you will be collected by the guide and brought back to Kalbarri. This is a fantastic family outing and recommended for all age groups.

Hired a motorised tinny on a beautifully warm Friday afternoon. The female proprietor (I didn't catch her name) of the business was extremely approachable and lovely Chleo the golden retriever - living her best life! - showed us around the boat. We enjoyed a couple...More

Took myself, 9yr old son and 11 yr old daughter not the river. Awesome breakfast, great spot of the world to canoe, even with a decent headwind. Thanks Dan for the great cook up.

Dan was terrific, and cooks a great brekky. I enjoyed the 4wding and liked that it was a self guided tour for the canoes. So beautiful out on the water. Thanks! Taylor B

Great morning with Dan started with a 4 wheel drive trip up the river. Then canoeing and a huge breakfast. Lots of birds on the river a few goats and wallabies on the banks.

They advertise this activity as suitable for all fitness levels. We were a little daunted as senior folk with the expectation of a 10k paddle. Our doubts were unfounded

Hi, the water is flat but when we did it the river was very full, lots of eddies and fast flowing so check the water levels. Canoes fitted 4 people but obviously the heavier the canoe the harder you work. Everyone has to... More
