This was the sight I was welcomed with the other afternoon as I was packing up the kayaks. Such a beautiful location. I cant wait for the sunset tours to start. Perfect for sharing a cheese platter and a glass of wine with.
I discovered a new track while hiking through Ku-Ring-Gai National Park last week that we will be incorporating into Pittwater Kayak Tours. The walk begins at The Basin which is a beautiful picnic area with BBQ facilities where you are guaranteed to see Wallabies. The wallabies are wild, but used to human interaction so are very tame and will allow you quite close to them.
I continued up the Basin Track where I saw a plethora of Native wildflowers beginning to bloom. There were all sorts of colours and varieties in this true Australian Bush.
There were also extravagant Aboriginal engravings along the way which have been preserved.
As I followed the track towards Great Mackerel Beach I was rewarded with breathtaking views looking over Great Mackerel and Pittwater towards Barrenjoey lighthouse. It was a truly magical way to spend a day.
3 university students made the early morning trip out to Palm Beach for the sunrise tour and were rewarded with some spectacular memories. Maria, Alex and Becca landed on the western side of Pittwater at Resolute Bay to watch the sun rise over Barrenjoey Headland. After a couple of quick photos we trekked up to West Head lookout to the expansive views over Pittwater, Broken Bay and the Hawkesbury.
A real highlight of the trip was on the way back when a lone dolphin swam up and said hello, surfacing repeatedly just metres from our kayaks before swimming directly underneath us and off on its merry way.
This is what Maria had to say “We had a great time Greg! Thank You :)”
