Explore the magnificent and mysterious Warrego River in the Outback on a guided kayak tour with a local who knows and loves this sensational creation of nature. The Warrego River has links back one hundred and ninety million years to the Jurassic period and you can get a sense of that as we paddle through the lost forest and heavily timbered areas.
Kayaking provides a unique way to experience Queensland’s outback and on this adventure you’ll feel like you are paddling the nature capital of the world as Out the Back Australia tour guides take you on a sensational journey with nature, wildlife and birds.
An interesting fact is the Warrego River is home to the Cooper Creek turtle, one of the largest side-necked turtles in Australia. You can often see them sunning themselves on tree trunks lying across the water, however they're quick to dive back into the water if you get too close.
The word Warrego is an Aboriginal word meaning river of sand. The river has cultural significance to local Aboriginal tribes and is in many of their dreamtime stories and ceremonies. You will be amazed as we kayak through the amazing web of channels how sandy islands are formed during flood times from the loose bed of sand moving throughout the river system.
The Warrego river has unique features and is ever-changing based on local hydrology ecology and the natural climatic conditions of the region. Many are surprised that such a beautiful river and waterholes exist amongst the western Queensland desert!
The Warrego River in Cunnamulla was also significant for the European settlers and pioneers as the permanent source of water attracted this location for the settlement of the town. With two hundred and fifteen species of Australian native birds documented in the Cunnamulla area, the Warrego River provides a natural haven and makes the perfect vantage point to experience some bird watching.
