Destination Unknown

[Maria River]

The beauty about living in Canberra is that it is the perfect gate way to so many stunning destinations whether it be the South Coast, Brindabella Mountain Range or the snow.The variety is huge, one weekend you could be paddling a tidal creek at Pambula, next week skiing the Snowy Mountains, trout fishing at Eucumbene or surfing a few waves at Bawley Point. Throughout the years we have been so fortunate to discover so many wonderful spots, sometimes while being totally lost.

On the kayakcameraman blog I will also be loading pictures of other destinations such as, Bermagui, Merimbula, Pambula, Tuross Head, Newcastle Beach & Newcastle Harbour, Myall Lakes, Forster, Seal Rocks, Crescent Head, Maria River, Hat Head, South West Rocks, Sawtell and Coffs Harbour just to name a few. Hopefully you will be able to come along for the ride with me and experience these places through my photos.

  1. Shellharbour NSW my friend, because I can just chill out and not have a care in the world. And the water’s a bloody lot warmer than the south coast 🙂

  2. Hi Paul, I am also a keen paddler and would like to invite you to come paddling with me in some of my favourite spots throughout south australia, I love the riverland, it has heaps of beautiful kayaking destinations but I do spend most of my paddling days exploring the fleurieu peninsula and south coast of Adelaide.
    Cheers mate hope to see you on the water sometime, you’re and inspiration, Keep Paddling!

    • Hey Tom, No problems at all mate, thanks for the invite. I will definitely get in contact with you for sure when I visit South Australia as I haven’t paddled there before. I’m always looking for new places to experience. Thanks for clicking onto the site and thanks for the kind words. All the best….Paul.

  3. Hi Paul, love the photos!! We introduced our children to kayaking a couple of years ago and they love it. Am needing suggestions as to where we can take them other than the local lakes etc. We have done some ocean stuff but would love to do a river paddle locally? ATM we only have a couple of Malibu xl Tandems. Would love some ideas!


    • Hi Lynette,
      Where are you located? I have been lucky enough to discover a few nice places on the east coast between Pambula and Coff’s Harbour so far and I have marvelled at many stunning water ways along the way. Google earth is my best friend along with ‘The Global Paddler’. This is a fantastic website and he ‘Scott’ also has book available that details paddle venues. It’s a great website and also a brilliant book, well worth a look. I loved paddling through Pambula, Merimbula, Jervis bay and it estuaries, Newcastle and a multitude of waterways that comprise the Mid North coast region. I have only been paddling for the past two years and hopefully I will be able to tell you about more destinations in the future. Also please let me know your favourite super secret spots that you discover along the way.
      Kind Regards

  4. Hi Paul, just saw your amazing story and amazing photos. What an inspiration you are to those who struggle with cancer and budding photographers, of which I am the latter. I don’t kayak I’d be terrified of getting the camera wet but you submerged yours . Did it work after that ? Saw your story on the canon leap site. Brilliant work in both areas. Keep it up 😀

    • Hi Julie,
      Thank you so much for letting me know about the feature, I had no idea at all. Much appreciated your for your kind words, light and water are a beautiful combination and they never cease to please. I regularly use a 70D with a 18-200mm lens and you would be in shock if you watched how a capture my images. I only submerge my D30 Canon as it is fully water proof. I am so glad you like the imagery and I will be continually scratching the shutterbug itch for many year to come. All the best . Paul
