We had a mixed group on this paddle with people from all over the world. It was a typical Winter’s day with blue skies and little wind. We paddled across Pittwater and took the shorter bush walk from Resolute Bay up to the top of 3rd Head. We checked out the Aboriginal Cave on the way up, with hand prints are believed to be up to 2000 years old. Everyone had a great time and got along well together.
These 2 friends and a couple from America drove up the peninsular to Palm Beach thinking it would be a rainy kayak and bush walk (it does add a beautiful mystique to the area in these conditions). As we unpacked the kayaks and got into our PFD’s we were greeted with a beautiful double rainbow. It ended up being a lovely tour and both waterfalls were also running lightly after the rain.
Just the drive up the Peninsular of Sydney’s Northern Beaches is a spectaclar tour in itself. Stopping at some of the beautiful beaches along the way including Palm Beach, Whale Beach, Avalon, Bilgola, Mona Vale, Narrabeen, Collaroy, Curl Curl, Freshwater and Manly.
Throw in a kayak across Pittwater, bush walk in Ku-Ring-Gai National park, a swim at a beautiful beach and then sunset in Mosman watching the sunset over the Sydney Harbour Bridge and its close to a perfect day for a local, let alone a friend visiting from overseas.
This group of friends Sarah, Phil and Dave brought their cousin Andrea from Portugal out for a paddle on the Northern Beaches to show her some truly beautiful Australian Nature. They started the day kayaking on Pittwater and bush walking in Ku Ring Gai National Park and then were headed into the city to have dinner on a Tall ship on Sydney Harbour. An excellent way to spend a day and to show around a guest from overseas.
Connor had just arrived in Australia and was wondering what to do in Sydney. He thought, what better way to come and experience Australia than to go for a paddle with Pittwater Kayak Tours on beautiful Pittwater and then bush walk in Ku Ring Gai National Park. We also paddled to Coasters Retreat and the Basin where Connor was able to get up close and personal with a Wallaby.
These English expats came for a paddle with Pittwater Kayak Tours. Due to a howling Nth Easter we were unable to cross Pittwater so instead paddled up to Barrenjoey Headland where I anchored my kayaks with my assistant Jack and then we walked up to Barrenjoey lighthouse. Unfortunately we didn’t see any whales on this afternoon, but they are regularly seen from this spot. Barrenjoey lighthouse is 1 of only 2 lighhouses on the entire east coast of Australia that isn’t painted white. We had beautiful views out over both Pittwater and Palm Beach which is where they film the hit TV series Home and Away. This paddle is a must for any English backpackers who love Home and Away and all that “Summer Bay” offers.
A mate and I went out fishing in the kayaks on Pittwater the other day. We were a bit unlucky, we both got bitten off a couple of times by some decent size fish. The only one we managed to get in the kayak was a little Tailor that my mate caught. We still had an amazing day though, despite the lack of fish. We hiked up to some phenomenal views, checked out the “Red Hands” Aboriginal cave, saw some amazing wildlife including a pair of Sea Eagles hunting above us and a big Goanna scaling a tree.
Great seeing you champion!
