Start your explorations on the coast at Guilderton which boasts an idyllic coastal setting and is situated on the banks of the Moore River. There are many walking trails in and around Moore River which allow visitors to relish nature at its best. Swimming, kayaking, canoeing and cruising along the fertile river are also high on the agenda for holiday makers. A boardwalk allows visitors to appreciate the many species of birds and the surrounding area offers a great place to relax and have a picnic.
Fishing is a popular past time in the Moore River region and you can fish either in the river itself or off the coast in spots like Ledge Point, Caraban and Quinns Rocks.
