Middle Harbour is a unique part of Sydney Harbour that would take you a long time to explore.
Enjoy the sights — white sandy beaches, healthy mangrove systems and dense eucalypt forests. Glide along calm waters past ship wrecks, lighthouses, and even an explosives depot (now decommissioned).
See wildlife in its natural habitat — birdlife, such as herons, cormorants, and sea eagles; and marine life, like moon jellies, fairy penguins, salt-water fish, occasionally dolphins and the odd seal.
Look out for evidence of how the area was first used by Sydney's original paddlers, the Gameragal people, who fished from nawis -- bark canoes -- on the very same waters that you can paddle on today. Ask our staff where to find Aboriginal rock carvings, and which trees were used to make the nawi (canoe) and gamai (spear for fishing).
