Boambee Creek Reserve in Sawtell (just a 10-minute drive from Coffs Harbour), is a picture-perfect bay with calm, clear water, pretty beaches, a gorgeous deep-green backdrop of trees and plenty of fish. It’s the ideal Coffs Coast spot to go swimming, fishing, kayaking or canoeing.
Going kayaking on this beautiful creek has been high on my list of things I want to do in Coffs Harbour, yet for some reason I’d never got around to doing it until now.
To be fair, kayaking in Sawtell wasn’t that easy to organise until 2012, when Matthew Sparrius set up his C-Change Adventures kayak hire & tours business at Boambee Creek Reserve.
Now it’s easy to drive down, hire a single or double kayak, step in and paddle away. Within minutes you’re surrounded by nothing but nature. And there’s a lot to explore: the creek is very wide and goes several kilometres inland.
