Canoe Barrington

Barrington River in World Heritage Barrington Tops doesn’t get the airplay it deserves, I reckon. It’s a 3-4 hour drive north of Sydney, the countryside is green and undulating, it offers foodie cafes and old-style cake shops and you can bushwalk, cycle or float down the Barrington River.

Barrington Outdoor Education Centre www.boe.net.au  has got the canoe/kayak scene sewn up and you can take a guided tour or hire kayaks and go it alone. Conditions usually vary, depending on the drought, rainfall but there is usually a choice of a quiet canoe or whitewater rafting. February is the best month to canoe Barrington, the river is high and the weather is warm. Just watch out for black snakes – they like the river too!
