Kayak Bathurst Harbour, Tasmania, Australia
It’s hard to believe the UNESCO World Heritage Wilderness Region of Bathurst Harbour was once a large, dry plain.
Rising sea levels some 7,000 years ago flooded the entire area creating what is now referred to as ‘the most magnificent paddling destination in Australia’ and offering ‘one of the world’s 10 epic sea kayak paddles’.
Three times the size of Sydney Harbour, Bathurst Harbour is protected from the Southern Ocean by the narrow Bathurst Channel, creating on still days a mirrored water surface that perfectly reflects the blue sky and surrounding mountains.
Kayaking over these mirrored images can feel like entering another dimension – a meditation disturbed only by the splash and movement of paddles.
