Your tour will begin at 9:45 when we will meet at the Margaret River mouth, Prevelly Beach.
Please note we do not pick up for this tour.
You’ll be greeted at Surfers Point where the river meets the ocean.
After our introductions and a safety briefing, we’ll launch at 10.00 am, paddling upstream past cliffs, pioneer and aboriginal sites in our stable canoes. Access to the river is very restricted so there are no powerboats and the ecosystem is almost untouched, boasting an abundance of wildlife, unique coastal forests and tranquil waters. Lunch will be served around 1 pm served and includes an exotic selection of wild food tastes from all over Western Australia, including kangaroo, emu and crocodile along with wild nut pesto, quandongs, bush tomatoes and much more. Vegetarians are well catered for.
After lunch, we’ll paddle a little further upstream past forested kangaroo habitats and learn the history of our first native inhabitants and the trials of the famous Bussell family who were among the first European settlers in the region. There will be opportunities for unique photos, fun in the sun before we meander back downstream or race for a bottle of Margaret River wine.
