Situated on the Gippsland Lakes and surrounded by rivers, means endless paddling options for our Sit on Top Kayaks & Stand Up Paddleboards.
Self-guided Paddling, up to 2hrs:
Paddle the Cunningham Arm (aka the front lake), which will take you under our iconic Footbridge at one end, and towards the Entrance at the other end. Beginner paddlers that prefer to keep away from other boats will prefer to head towards the Footbridge, but if you’re hoping to spot seals & dolphins, pull your vessel up on the beach just after Flagstaff Jetty and go for a short walk along the boardwalk at the Entrance channel.
