Kayaking on Lake Macquarie!

This is an easy introduction to kayaking and is a great way to experience Lake Macquarie under the supervision of qualified guides. Departing from Wangi Wangi boat ramp, the group will complete a basic skills paddling session in the double sea kayaks before paddling across the lake to Pulbah Island. The group will travel around the island stopping on a beach at Pt Woolstonecraft for morning tea were coffee, tea or hot chocolate will be provided. Returning to the water, paddlers will cross to Wangi Point before following the shoreline back to the starting location.
