Mindful Canoeing Nature Experience

Shoalhaven, New South Wales

Enjoy a complete body and soul reset on a gentle, contemplative canoe trip with an emphasis on nature connection in the South Coast of NSW.

Surrounded by towering sandstone cliffs, the Shoalhaven Gorge offers hidden pristine waterfalls and swimming holes, an abundance of wildlife, and is the most scenic flatwater paddling venue in Australia.

Your 1-day tour will involve expending a moderate level of energy while paddling but there is ample time for relaxing throughout the journey as you pause and reflect on the wonders around you. Your instructors will coach you in cultivating moment to moment awareness through the grounded activity of paddling with the aim of experiencing a magical moment: a congruence and oneness of body, boat, paddle and water.

No experience is required as you will get full support from qualified instructors. Those who are new to mindfulness will receive the most out of this session. It’s especially beautiful in the depths of winter when the tour finishes around sunset. A full day, at a slow pace – renew your spirit and be nourished in nature!
