Hawthorn Lodge is an excellent location for Tasmania kayaking. For those new to kayaking the Derwent River is a perfect introduction to kayaking. For those with some experience the rapids will provide excitement.
We offer a daily Tasmania kayaking adventure starting from Hawthorn Lodge. Our expert guides will pick you up and provide all the instruction and equipment needed. Lunch is provided and a chance to swim as well. The trip takes around five hours.
The trip is down the Derwent River with the launch site at Bushy Park a few minutes from Hawthorn Lodge. The pick up is just before New Norfolk.
One section has advanced rapids where those keen to do more can practice. The quieter waters are where we normally see platypus playing and much bird life.
For guests staying with us please do book before you come. The cost is $150/person.
