Capture incredible photographs of Perth’s stunning city centre from our unique riverside perspective and enjoy soaking up the tranquil vibes and laid-back charms of this fascinating area.

 

A true hidden gem, Swan Canning Riverpark is located a stone’s throw from Perth city centre. Make your own way to the Garrat Road Bridge Park, where we have a brief safety meeting and take to the water in our amazing double kayaks. We paddle downstream through the Baigup Wetlands and Tranby Reserve, exploring the meandering riverside and marvelling at the sight of dolphins leaping out of the water.

 

This kayaking tour leads us all the way along the beautiful river to the edges of Perth’s city centre, where we take a break and enjoy the incredible vistas and the stunning contrasts between Western Australia’s beautiful capital city and the lush countryside. Take a break on a secluded riverbank and reenergize with a delicious and healthy snack as our guides tell us fascinating tales of the past.
