Type - Kayaking / Canoe / Rafting / Bikerafting (Packrafting)
Difficulty - Intermediate

Kayaking down the Burdekin is an incredibly rewarding adventure. Enjoy a gentle paddle downstream and you take in the abundance of birdlife with some big birds in the mix and a large variety of wildlife including lots of cattle, wild bores, and fish. This trip will take you down Australia's largest river by (peak) discharge volume. Due to the river's length, there are many sections to paddle. However, the lower downstream you head, the more crocodiles.
