Clarence River Wilderness Lodge, just 3 hours from Brisbane, is situated on the headwaters of the Clarence River in the rugged Great Dividing Range. Four thousand hectares of river-crafted country have been preserved in a wildlife refuge noted for the diverse abundance of its native animals and the wild splendour of its scenery.
The Clarence River Wilderness Lodge can provide a range of activities during your stay. The canoes are available free of charge for guests or for a fee for day visitors. Bushwalking and birdwatching are popular past times here, with over 160 different types of birds sighted in this area. Before setting out on your bird search, a handbook on birds and bird lists is available at the Lodge.
Bordered by National Parks, this is a great place to get back to nature with activities that include gold panning, observing animals, and viewing platypus. All-inclusive canoe trips can be organised to take in the Clarence or Nymboida Rivers from 1-3 days. See the website for further details or their other link http://www.clarencerivercanoes.com).
