I'm planning to kayak the Hawkesbury river starting at Windsor or Emu Plains or Warragamba Dam and finish near Palm Beach.

The starting point depends of the time and transport available. Windsor and Emu Plains are accessible by train but we need another car if we want to start at the Dam. Also, I'm not sure how close to the dam we are allowed to go and the way down is steep. They are options to bailout if the trip takes too long.

I would like to start on Monday 28th and finish on Sunday 4th but I should be flexible with the date. We could start a day or two later if necessary. We should aim to get out of the water on Sunday, doesn't matter where we are.

From Windsor the river is a lot more interesting and is also tide depends. I would prefer to paddle when the tide is going down for obvious reasons.

If you don't own a kayak you can rent one from around $250 for 7 days in Emu Plains. You may have cheaper options.

You need a kayak or raft, paddles, PFD, a lot of food, sun protection and sleeping gear.

I'm leaving tonight until Sunday morning and won't have phone reception during that time. If you are interested contact me by email and I will get back to you on Sunday.
