Swim the lagoon from a clean sandy beach or take a plunge in the ocean or nearby rock pool, visit an island in the middle of the lagoon we've never been to before, explore Deep Creek in all its glory, hear about the Royal Family's connection with Middle Creek, be close enough to photograph the over 100 Black Swans that have made the lagoon their home. Plus, find out why Narrabeen Lagoon was a centre of Aboriginal settlement, be amazed at the lagoon's pre-World War 2 German connection and tell us whether you like the idea of an “aquatic walkway” jutting out into the waterway. Start at 9am, finish round 3pm. Hire a quality kayak for just $98pp. No previous kayaking experience necessary, tuition given. Only 8 places remain. Grade easy. Led by former Friends of Narrabeen Lagoon Catchment President and long-time NPA member, Tony Carr. To register phone 0417 502 056 or email tonycarr@ozemail.com.au. View
