Cave, canoe and bush tucker tour

19:30 AEST Thu Dec 13 2012

Margaret River is just 290 kilometres south of Perth and is quite the place to go for a lazy break involving great food and local wines.

If you fancy doing something a little more adventurous, do as Kelly did and join one of Helen Lee's Cave, Canoe and Bushtucker tours.

A typical tour begins at 11am at Prevelly Beach at the mouth of the Margaret River. You hop into a canoe and paddle from the river mouth to Boogaloongar Island. The island is known as Sorry Island as a few times during the year the river drowns it and is said to wash visitors' worries and secrets away. There are stories of ancient trees, medicinal plants, Aboriginal sites and the first settlers in the area.
