  • It’s worth checking out wind and tides before heading out for a paddle. Going against one of those is a challenge. Going against both wind and tides is plain hard work/not really recommended.
  • There is a neat canoe ramp at the Southern end of the Bobbin Head picnic area
  • The boat ramp at Apple Tree Bay can be good but does get busy with boat traffic on weekends.
  • It is a national park – so don’t forget that there’s an entry fee on arrival, otherwise be sure to get yourself an annual parks pass.
