Take to the liquid streets of Canberra as you go island hopping with the water birds on board a self pedaled kayak. Strap on your life vest, partake in a quick safety briefing and set off for a relaxing kayak cruise of western Lake Burley Griffin. Your kayak relies on a very stable boat design, fingertip rudder control, dry hatches to store jumpers, cameras, phones – all of which makes kayaking a great and safe experience.
It’s time to sit back and match your breathing with the serene and tranquil waters as the relaxing circuit around the lake lets you discover water birds diving into the lake for fish, and ducking for cover in the reeds – and at some times of the year, raising their chicks at the water's edge!
All the while you behold the majestic background of Canberra’s surrounding forested peaks and mountain ranges, with a few of iconic national buildings poking their noses above the lake edge forests. Simply relax and allow the forest lined shores of western Lake Burley Griffin and its bird loving islands and beaches transport you to the serene world
