Full description
Begin your tour with Canberra hotel pick-up at 7:00. In a comfortable vehicle, travel through farmland and pastoral properties before reaching the historical town of Braidwood. Get out to stretch your legs and continue on through the temperate forest and down Clyde Mountain. Keep an eye out for lyre birds and tree ferns all the way to Batemans Bay, the gateway to the Eurobodalla Coast. This journey takes about two hours.

Here, meet your kayaking instructors who will help you explore the pristine waters of Cullendulla Sanctuary in stable, glass bottom kayaks. From your kayak, spot stingrays on the sand flats and fish in the mangroves. The area is rich with wildlife and indigenous history. Your two hour kayak adventure includes snacks, photos, and all equipment.

At 12:00, hop in the shuttle to transfer to the town of Batemans Bay, where your guides will share their advice on what restaurants and cafes you can enjoy during your free time.
