MAKE A BOOKING

Paddling through the wildlife sanctuary and around to Tranby House is just a little taste of what will unfold along today's section on the Swan. 

 

During our time on the water, we detour off the main flow of the Swan, discovering birdlife flourishing in wetlands and a wildlife sanctuary known as Kuljak Island, which is located in the middle of the river - the Island was once used as a rubbish dump but has been rehabilitated into a wildlife sanctuary.  Another highlight of today's paddle is a stop off at the Historical Landmark, Tranby House where your Adventurous Women Host will be serving up a yummy picnic lunch.  The paddle will then continue until the point where the river begins to widen ... Another fabulous day of kayaking and exploring!


The distance of the Paddle is 7km and should be achievable for anyone with a reasonable level of fitness.  No prior kayaking experience is required.

I absolutely loved the walk . I had no expectations as it was my first walk with AW but it was so good in every way. The accommodation was great , the food was excellent ,the guides were wonderful and so caring .

I can't think of any way it could be improved , except maybe having another place to stay in between the swan valley and New Norcia ,as it was a long drive back the last couple of days .

A great walk on a beautiful day with some really lovely ladies. Being in the middle of Sydney, this walk was easy to access and provided some stunning riverside scenery. Deb was a great guide who pointed out some interesting historical points along the way.
