- Port Augusta
This trip takes its inspiration from the Yorkeys Xing or Bust event that members of the Whyalla Kayakers group enjoy together every March. The aim is to paddle from Port Augusta to Yorkeys Crossing at the top of Spencer Gulf and back. Are you up for the challenge?
- Port Pirie Creek
Upstream from where the Bridge to Nowhere spans Port Pirie Creek, paddlers are treated to the superb facilities of Solomontown Beach, panoramic views of the Flinders Ranges, and a chance to paddle beside the track used for two of Australia’s greatest railway journeys.
- Kellidie Bay
The mere mention of Coffin Bay is enough to set hearts aflutter in the oyster-loving world. Kellidie Bay not so much. However, the first colonial settlement in the Coffin Bay area was actually Oyster Town, on the southern shore of scenic Kellidie Bay.
- Coffin Bay
Paddle west into the limestone and sand dune fringed waters of Port Douglas from the township of Coffin Bay and you will find a place full of so much natural wonder that you will have your breath instantly taken, your jaw permanently dropped, and your gob forever smacked.
