What could be more relaxing than a day paddling, kayaking or canoeing in Moonee Creek? This estuary is part of Solitary Islands Marine Park which was the first marine park to be created in New South Wales. Tranquil and tree-lined, the creek offers a way to explore the southern section of the park.
You can easily spend the whole day enjoying this beautiful estuary. Pack a picnic lunch and fishing rods for catching bream and flathead. Bring along your binoculars for birdwatching – the wildlife is plentiful. The kids can swim, lilo, or wade through the shallows, and, if you check the tides, it can be a very easy trip on the gentle current.
Different forest types can be found in Moonee Beach Nature Reserve, such as littoral rainforest, coastal she-oak and banksia woodland. Try and pick out which is which while passing on your canoe, and keep a waterproof camera handy for that sought-after photograph of a sleeping koala.
Pure joy as you wake to the sunrise. Awe as you make it to the snowy peak. A sense of adventure as you motor across red plains. The relief of rejuvenation as you wade into an alpine stream. Connection as you taste native, fragrant leaves. A sense of belonging as you return to your favourite holiday house. Freedom as you dash into the waves. Discover the endless feelings a visit to NSW can inspire.
