One of the must see places when you are in Wilderness. There are a lot of B&B's and guest houses next to the lagoon and some places offer boat trips that go up the lagoon.

Lovely to walk along here just before sunset - spot some fishermen, or a couple having a peaceful impromptu picnic while enjoying the serenity.

Eight years on from our last visit it was nice to find that the boardwalk had been completed, so one can get close to the water and reedbeds where plenty of birds are to be found.

We did the eco-cruise run by Mike which was a nice experience with informative commentary that lasted about 90 minutes. You can take a picnic and Mike offers free snacks and water too if required. Nice trip.

Wilderness lagoon is the quintessential of peace. No currents, rocks, stumps etc We do the daily peddleboarding, swimming and canoeing. You can go into the Wilderness Reserve by canoe. Into the most tranquil environment you can imagine.

Magnificent lagoon - perfect for SUP, kayak, swimming and fishing. Also offers motorized boat, day or sundowner cruises. A must see & experience during your visit to the Garden Route! For those who enjoy walks, the Kingfisher Trail alongside the lagoon up to the waterfall...More
