Meet your Adventurous Women Host & Leonie from Water Wanderers at Riverview Reserve, 25 Norton Avenue Coodanup at 8.15am for an 8.30am start.
After introductions, we leave some vehicles at the reserve and car-pool in other vehicles around to our put-in location in Greenfields (4.7kms). There are public toilets here and a good launch beach. We begin our paddle along the Serpentine River, an interesting section that has us snaking our way through, backwaters, twists, turns and bends and to the river mouth, then paddling back to Riverview Reserve. Make sure you keep an eye out for the abundant birdlife including the Yellow-billed Spoonbill often found in these waters. There are a few options for morning tea, lunch and toilet stops along the way and we've also got the option to look at Goegrup Lake at the start of the paddle.
This particular section of the Serpentine River often provides the paddler with a sense of being an explorer ... seemingly remote at times, but easily accessible!
Paddle Distance : 10kms
Paddle Style : Should be achievable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness. No prior kayaking experience is required.
