Location

Where the heck is Nelligen?

Google Maps Search: Nelligen Kayak Hire

Our meeting point for kayak hire is the Nelligen boat ramp. Plenty of parking available. It is in front of the River Cafe, ideal for an ice cream or coffee post-paddle. We accept both cash and card payment.

About Nelligen and the Clyde River

We hire out the kayaks right on the banks of the Clyde River at the Nelligen boat ramp. It is the perfect place to start your kayaking or canoeing adventure. Nelligen is just 8kms from Batemans Bay on the Kings Highway (on the way to Canberra).

Nelligen has long been regarded as an excellent location for river exploring. Whether you just want to paddle past the houses lining the river or perhaps explore the mangroves, there is plenty to keep you interested. Houseboats cruise past. Pelicans swoop low over the water, just enjoying themselves. Wave to the passengers on the River Ferry. Perhaps you want to try your luck at fishing.

But the true pleasure is stepping back in time and enjoying the peace and solitude of the river. Just imagine, drifting quietly along with gentle strokes of your paddle, or hitchhiking the tide. Priceless.

Happy paddlers!

Oh my god so much fun! I’ve never been kayaking before and it was tricky learning with Emma but we eventually got the hang of it. Definitely recommend it.

I had a very enjoyable couple of hours in the canoe. It was a nice mix of exercise and seeing the wildlife of Nelligen. My highlight was spotting the pelicans!

After a few Schmacko’s I really found myself enjoying being out on the Clyde river. I had a few good sniffs at the fish and was very intrigued by the jellyfish floating past. Woof.
