All you do is paddle down the river for two or three days, and just immerse yourself in nature. The peace and tranquility. There is a number of small rapids to negotiate along the way.
As we are going through working cattle stations, there is the chance to see the workers mustering or working the cattle in the yards. Where you can get out and get up close to the action.
Fishing is the same throughout the Burdekin River system. If you would prefer to fish with bait, a bag of bait can be supplied. All fish are released (with the exception of Talapia which is a noxious pest). However, one fish per person may be kept for dinner or breakfast. The guide can even clean and cook the fish for you. Or if you prefer, you can do it all yourself.
