Myall Lakes National Park: 3-Day Kayak Trip


Myall Lakes National Park: 3-Day Kayak Trip // $485

The School of Yak-Myall Lakes Kayaking-20190219_085152 2.jpg

Look no further for a classic Aussie kayak adventure. Join us and The School of Yak for three days kayaking on the state’s largest coastal lakes and two nights camping at secluded lakeside campgrounds surrounded by native bushland and wildlife.

We have planned a great program so that you not only have an awesome time, but also take away new skills, confidence and friends from your participation in this kayak trip. We have allowed time for you to just relax and enjoy being out in the natural world away from the distractions of life!


TIME:

Friday 6 September 8.30am - Sunday 8 September 4pm

PRE-REQUISITES:

There is no need for you to have previous kayaking experience. Our guide will adjust the program to allow for everyone’s skill level. Age is also no barrier to kayaking. No matter how young or old, you just need to a have moderate level of fitness and be confident to hold your head above the water in the unlikely event of a capsize scenario until the instructor comes and aids you back into the kayak.
