    What to expect:

    Leaving from the Parsley bay boat ramp, Brooklyn, we paddle down the Hawkesbury River. Passing beautiful bush, Aboriginal rock art and spectacular sandstone cliffs, this paddle has spectacular scenery and views. We stop for a stretch (and a swim if you are up for it) on Eleanor Beach. Just to make sure that this is not becoming a hectic exercise, we stop for lunch at one of the Sandy Beaches in Cowan Creek. The lunch that we have to offer, justifies the whole kayaking experience.

    After lunch, we will continue the Paddle and retrace our path back to Brooklyn. On the return paddle, we look at a spectacular view down Pittwater, past Lion Island, and out to the Ocean.
