kayaking on yardie creek in cape range national park

Dennis and Lee (famous from the Hamersley Inlet post) are further north now, and recently went kayaking on Yardie Creek in Cape Range National Park, WA.

“A fabulous paddle on calm water and late in the afternoon we saw many Black Flanked Rock Wallabies. Other people pay to do a short boat cruise up the creek but we did it for free!”

Kayaking on Yardie Creek is spectacular in part because of the huge red cliffs of Yardie Creek Gorge.

There is also abundant wildlife, including the black-footed rock wallabies that Dennis and Lee were lucky enough to see.

Kayaking on Yardie Creek – the Details

Yardie Creek is part of Cape Range National Park, near Exemouth on the mid-west coast of WA.

Yardie Creek Map

To go kayaking on Yardie Creek, you can access the mouth of the creek from the southern end of Yardie Creek Road. This is a sealed road that ends with a car park. There is a boat ramp and a pontoon, but there are plenty of sandy spots close to the carpark to launch the kayaks.

You can stay at Yardie Creek Campground which is right there at the mouth of Yardie Creek, but Dennis and Lee stayed at nearby Osprey Bay Campground which has a lot more in the way of facilities.

This area is also ideal for kayaking on Ningaloo Reef (that post is coming soon).

The AdvancedFrame Convertible inflatable kayak is ideal for Dennis and Lee who are travelling around Australia because it is:

  • convertible – can be paddled solo or tandem
  • quick and easy to set up – ideal if you want to go out for just an hour or so
  • stable on the water – easy to paddle if you don’t have a lot of experience
  • very supportive and comfortable for relaxing
  • a delight to paddle – goes straight and fast
  • versatile – can handle open ocean, mild rivers, lakes, bays – can do an hour or a multi-day expedition

BUT, it might not be the right kayak for you.

It’s a lot of money down the drain if you get the wrong model, so it’s worth asking for my advice!

About Oz Inflatable Kayaks

Inflatable Kayak Seaworld Lagoon Emily

Hi, my name is Emily and over a decade ago I thought to myself “gee, I would really love to go kayaking … if only I had a big strong butler to help me get a kayak on and off roof racks. Oh, and several thousand dollars for the kayak and the roof racks (not to mention the cost of the butler)”.

To find a way to go paddling without a heavy hard-shell kayak, I started looking into inflatable kayaks. But I did NOT want a pool toy.

The Advanced Elements range of inflatable kayaks really blew me away (excuse the terrible pun).

I realised that the quality was not just about durability, it also meant that the kayaks were comfortable and easy to paddle straight and fast.

It just so happens that I was also looking for a business opportunity at the same time…

Nowadays I specialise (and delight) in selling Advanced Elements inflatables to all kinds of people in Australia.

I know the range so well that I do personalised recommendation videos to help people choose the right kayak.

It’s a no-obligation service that I enjoy doing AND it helps me in the long run because my customers that get a recommendation get the right kayak, first time. They are HAPPY customers!

So if you are even vaguely thinking about kayaking, get in touch or get your FREE personalised kayak recommendation now.

“I have always loved paddling on the river and on still water but it was impossible for me to do it independently. You can’t stop me now. In less than 10 minutes after pulling up I’m on the water.”
