Camping and Kayaking on the Glenelg River

Camping and Kayaking on the Glenelg River

Heath recently shared to me via email his Glenelg River adventure together with some stunning images.

“Good afternoon Emily, we had a great trip and the AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayaks for the most part held up really well and I was very surprised about how effortless they were to paddle long distances.”

Sounds like it was an awesome adventure with our kayaks!

Heath continued his story:

“On average we were doing 12km per day. We had a support boat to carry nearly all our gear which make life better.

The last day was the best, we were averaging 4.5km per hour into a headwind.”

“On the last day we came around a bend to see two adult emus swimming across the river right in front of us. When I looked a bit further downstream, saw three chicks in the water too.”

“Totally random and whilst some people have heard of adult emus swimming, no-one had ever heard of chicks swimming.”

“Maybe the adults were teaching the chicks. They were about the size of a chicken and still had their stripes.”

If you want to go camping and kayaking on the Glenelg River, here are the details from Heath:

“This is a map of where we paddled. We normally start at Moleside but with the weather a bit ordinary on the first day, we started at Saunders Landing as that was where we put the support boat in.”

We pulled out at Simpsons Landing as it has a nice beach and boat ramp, but previously would go into Nelson proper. The last leg into Nelson is a bit of a slog as you usually get a strong wind coming from the mouth.

In my opinion one of the best inland multi-day paddles and very family friendly.

The AdvancedFrame Convertible Kayak is perfect for Heath because:

  • It’s easy to paddle straight as it has an Aluminum Rib Frame Design.
  • It has plenty of leg room with a capacity of 249kg.
  • The high-backed seat and soft inflatable floor are both very comfortable and supportive of his back and bum.
  • It’s very durable – he didn’t have to worry about submerged obstacles in creeks
  • It’s quick and easy to set-up and pack away.

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!
