Where to Kayak in South Australia

South Australia is the driest state, but has some of the most remarkable locations to kayak and many of these waterways are just a short drive from the Adelaide metro area.

The River Murray creeks and backwaters offer perfect kayaking trails. One must be alert to other water enthusiasts including houseboats, power boats and the Murray Explorer. But the diverse landscapes are a paddlers dream.

Katarapko National Park is ideal for beginner paddlers and families and is located opposite the town of Loxton. Chambers Creek is popular as well as the waterways of Swan Reach and Morgan which have amazing wildlife and cliff views.

Just near Renmark is Chowilla Creek, which is known for paddlers to see 3 states in one day (SA, NSW and VIC).

Paddling Groups and Clubs

As a retail paddling store, we are often a first port of call for people looking for other people to go paddling with. Whilst there are a number of options here, Kayaks Australia recommends that if you are a novice paddler (or even if you have some experience), you consider joining one of the many registered canoe or kayak clubs.

Whilst many clubs are focused on a particular aspect of kayaking (racing – either sprint or marathon, white water, sea kayaking, etc), there are clubs around that have more of a general feel to them whilst still having the specialist areas incorporated into them.

Catching Crabs on your Stand up Paddleboard!

Yes one of my favourite “out there” things to do on my Stand up Paddleboard is to go Crabbing!

I had some great down time on the Tuggerah Lakes catching some Crabs on my Stand up Paddle board yesterday.

Yes you heard it right, there are so many fun activities to do and this is just 1 thing I love doing with my SUP.

I paddled out in the lake late on Saturday to put the traps out with the old fish I managed to get off my brother in law who is a mad fisherman. Instead of taking the kayak out it was a very calm day and so I got out the Sup and off I went.

It was so much fun pulling in th traps on Sunday morning and seeing how many I had got!!

PLENTY and the best part was the Chill Crab for dinner was AMAZING.

You will love this too, grab a crab trap, a CMP Stand up Paddleboard and some old fish and head out Paddling!

You will have so much fun. I Love all my Paddling adventures and so do the kids!!!
