Bundeena Kayaks operates from Bonnie Vale picnic area at Bundeena, in the south of Sydney. Bundeena is based on the Port Hacking waterway and bordered by the Royal National Park, a perfect base for a kayaking adventure.
Choose to go along on a guided river tour or hire a kayak and gear and plan your own trip. A map of the area is supplied and we can suggest some lovely spots to stop for a picnic, short bush walk or a swim.
A couple of popular places to visit by kayak include Cabbage Tree Basin/Creek and Winifred Falls. Cabbage Tree Basin is a 45 minute paddle from Bundeena and is best paddled just before a high tide greater than 1.7 metres. It’s a peaceful and beautiful area, with a wealth of natural and historical treasures. Winifred Falls, at the end of South West Arm, is a 1.5 hour paddle and a short bush walk. This area is also best paddled an hour or two before a high tide. It’s a great place for a swim, either in the river or in one of the freshwater swimming holes.
Bundeena is a great destination for a mid-week or week-end city escape. In addition to kayaking, visitors can enjoy some spectacular cliff top bush walking, view the works of numerous local artists (the Art Trail is held on the 1st Sunday of every month) or laze around on one of the three beaches in the area, Bonnie Vale, Jibbon and Horden’s. There are an abundance of places to stay, including the Bonnie Vale camping ground (operated by National Parks and Wildlife Service), B&Bs galore, apartments and a luxury guest house. Bundeena is a 50 minute drive from the centre of Sydney or take the train to Cronulla and then the ferry across to Bundeena.
Bundeena Kayaks also has a range of kayaks available for sale and free test paddles are available by appointment.
