Boating and canoeing

A five kilometre canoe trail at Safes Lagoon near Koondrook in the adjacent state forest will take about two hours to complete (return). Bring your own canoe and check water levels and access before you go.

Find out more about the Koondrook Canoe Trail from the Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning.


Swimming is popular, particularly at the numerous sandy river bend beaches.

Take care when swimming - cold water and fast currents can be hazardous and there may be submerged logs.
