Maroochy River easy 1.3km circuit

This paddle is suitable all level of kayakers and stand up paddle boarders. There are multiple places to launch from. Be aware the river can get quite choppy with wind and current. As always it is recommended to do a weather check before leaving. The island is easy to circumnavigate and has lots of small sandy areas. Dawn and dusk offer a whole other experience. Take a paddle further down to Goat Island (closer to the inlet) best with the incoming tide behind you on the return to make it easier.

There are toilet facilities, picnic and bbq areas and drinking water available. Parking can be a premium on weekends and holidays.
