Information and tips for kayaking on Lane Cove River


Lane Cove River is one of Sydney’s little known gems. From it’s mouth at Hunters Hill to the weir at Fullers Bridge and the start of the National Park, Lane Cove River offers a quiet and surprisingly diverse paddle. The old suburbs of Hunters Hill, Longaville and Gladesville  gradually give way to extensive patches of mangrove and native vegetation as the river winds its way up stream. A wide variety of bird life inhabit the riverbanks along with water dragons, possums and the occasional wallaby.  There are several launch spots along the rive with Burns Bay boat-ramp being the most accessible and offering some parking.

From urbane to national park

Other launch spots include Angelo St Reserve, Woolwich, Lindley Point and  Wirong Park, with riverbank launching points and unmetered parking.  Once on the water there are numerous little beaches suitable for landing at and exploring the local bush or just lay down a picnic rug and have lunch.  Allow a good half day to explore Lane Cove River. It maybe close to Sydney but it could be a thousand miles away.
