Kayak Hire

   
 

Too ezy - our most popular option is a self-guided kayak on the Myall River at your own pace. We are located in Hawks Nest, just over the singing bridge from Tea Gardens on the north side of Port Stephens, only a 2.5 hour drive from Sydney and close to the Great Lakes National Park.

Suitable for beginners, fun for adults and children. Perfect when you are looking for adventures and things to do in the area. We make it ezy for you to enjoy the Myall River. You can paddle into mangroves around islands, see local wildlife, historical shipwrecks and may even get to do a bit of dolphin watching. We can also organise takeaway kayaks for your overnight camping trip. If you are in Nelson Bay - you can catch the ferry across the bay, just ask to be dropped at Hawks Nest Wharf. We are a 3 minute walk from the wharf.
