About this Event

On your Women Want Adventure paddle, we explore the river from the weir at Fuller’s Bridge all the way down to the Harbour.

ABOUT:

From our gathering point at Wirong Flat on River Avenue Lane Cove, we'll start with a technique and safety briefing to make sure you feel comfortable in the kayaks. We then head upstream to the weir - then downstream to Sugarloaf Reserve for a morning tea break. The river twists and turns as it passes through the Lane Cove River National Park.

Our lunch spot will be at a boutique beach on the Harbour (you’ll have a great view of the bridge), where you’ll be able to swim if you wish.

FAQ'S:

What if it's raining?

We'll go if showers are predicted but not if continuous rain, high winds or thunder and lightning are on the agenda. If in doubt on the day ring us just after 7am. If the paddle has to be postponed because of the conditions we will email you at 7am. No email = the paddle is on.

Are there minimum age requirements to enter the event?

You must be over the age of 18 years to attend this trip.

What do I need to wear in the kayak?

Comfortable clothing. Old shorts or tights. You can wear your swimmers with a rash shirt. Basic gym clothes work best. 

Do I need to be fit for this trip?

This is a beginner level tour. Women are in double kayak which means your can team up with your buddy if you feel a little tired. We always support everyone and go at a pace that works for the whole group. You don't need to book with a friend and can attend individually (most women do).
