The region's rural heritage and unique granite is evident along the banks of this river which winds past the historic town of Moruya. For a 14 kilometre return trip launch into shallow water at North Head campground near the airport, or at the Moruya town boat ramp in Riverside Park, east of Moruya Bridge. Look out for mangrove forests along the way.
A short side trip at high tide up Ryan's Creek, on the southern side of the river two kilometres east of Moruya Bridge, is worthwhile to see the mangroves and granite boulders in the water. Take the left fork at the junction.
Toilets are at North Head campground and both picnic tables and toilets are near the Moruya town boat ramp.
