Covid-19 Response

We want to reassure everyone that currently it’s still ‘business as usual’ at LDA, however we are operating at reduced hours or by pre-booking.

Mondays and Tuesdays - Closed
Wednesday to Sunday  - 10am to 4pm

We have strict protocols in place and are taking extra care to make sure all our equipment is thoroughly cleaned and ready for use. This is to ensure your safety and ours! We will be asking for proof of arrival date for international guests. What better way to socially distance yourselves than to take a kayak or bike out and be at one with nature!

We thank you for your understanding. 
Any questions, please don't hesitate to call or email.
From Sally, Steve and all the LDA team.

See what our happy customers have to say:

"Absolutely amazing. Paddling upstream was one thing, but drifting back down at night under the glow of the worms, in otherwise dark silence was wordless.

Something between Avatar, staring at stars in the wilderness and flying over a city at night, except you are right there and can almost touch the lights. 
We would truly recommend the adventure. 

Michael and Lofty were knowledgeable, fun and just had the best 'dad jokes' 

Cheers guys from Aus"
