Paddle the Moore River
Moore River is located on the Swan Coastal Plain. The ‘Desert’ is a local landmark, spanning some 40-hectares from a section of the river. This mobile sand dune is heading in a north-easterly direction, moving at around 1.5 metres annually. This river is a paddler’s dream, with a dedicated launching point with parking and ablutions at Silver Creek, about 1.5-kilometres upstream from the rivermouth.
Non-motorised zones have been designated at Silver Creek, the rivermouth and upstream from Diamond Island, to ensure a safe paddling experience. Hire a paddleboat, kayak or canoe at the mouth of the river.
Guilderton, also widely known as Moore River by the locals, lies on one of the last remaining unspoilt estuary in the region. Having its origin as a place of recreation, Guilderton Moore River remains a good place for relaxation and fun even after many decades.
For Guilderton Moore River, the attraction is nature itself. The river itself provides a safe spot for watersports such as swimming, kayaking, and fishing with its calm waters. The beach is a popular place for picnics and BBQs too. The estuary is especially picturesque when the tide is lower, as a sandbar would emerge and separate the river from the ocean, producing a breathtaking sight.
