“We drove down the coast from Canberra in the school holidays, took our teenage boys out on kayaks and had wonderful coffee!”

- Sarah

The perfect itinerary!


Head down to the Boatshed for delicious Fish River Roasters coffee and a locally made treat. Meet our friendly staff who will let you know the ideal time to kayak on the stunning Tomaga River, depending on the tides and conditions.

Our staff will then kit you up with a life jacket, dry bag and your chosen kayak: double, single or three seater (third seat is for a small child, or your furry friend!). No experience is necessary – we will give you a kayaking lesson before you head off!

Slip into the turquoise water and you will feel instantly at peace. Choose to explore the mangroves, pull up and have a swim, or take a picnic and head way up river with the incoming tide for a few hours!


Make your way back with the outgoing tide, searching for stingrays as you float back to The Boatie. Our staff will be ready to welcome you back and take your gear. 

Treat yourself to another coffee, tea, hot chocolate or milkshake and peruse our clothing and merchandise – all locally designed. Take home a little piece of Mossy Point!
