Travelling to Western Australia

Postby Maccas » Mon Apr 11, 2016 9:15 am

My wife and I are travelling through WA over the next few months. Currently at Ceduna will hit Esperance on the Anzac Day weekend. We would appreciate any advice from those paddlers in WA on locations we should visit for a paddle day/overnight? Hopefully we will bump into some paddlers along the way, going as far north as Broome then home across the top to QLD.

I think you might possibly be the same Macca that posted on the Albany Sea Kayak facebook page this today? If so it'll be good to see you in early May.
My experience is fairly limited and Gavin, Chris and Les Allen from the club will have some more ideas... but if I was travelling through this region the one short paddle I would definitely go on is from Greens Pool to Elephant Rocks and Madfish Bay in William Bay National Park, just east of Denmark. It's a great place to explore, relax have a picnic lunch etc in lagoon like conditions.

Also, the paddle from Two Peoples Bay National Park, past Little Beach to Secret Cove and around Coffin Island is one I really enjoy. There is usually a group/pack/gang? of seals on the island...the southern end of Coffin Island can get quite demanding in rough conditions with many bombies but the northern end is usually fairly protected even on big swell days.

Enjoy your trip.

Thanks Brodie, yes indeed I joined the Albany group last night always good to tap into the locals. They sound like a couple of good paddles we will look at, hopefully hook up with some locals for a paddle as well.

When you get up north you should paddle Shark Bay and Ningaloo Reef. Both excellent for multi-day trips.

Hi all I live in Broome WA a small group of us are planning to paddle from Coral Bay to Exmouth
In early July
We are in the early stages of organising this trip
We are planing to have some ground support
as well. We are planning on spaceing it out over
Five days, as it's only about 130 kilometres
We will have plenty of time for fishing, snorkelling campfire etc
My question is to anyone that may have done
This paddle before.
Any tips?
