The many creeks, rivers and dams within Glen Innes Highlands make for some great water sport destinations.
Nymboida National Park and Beardy Waters Dam & Woodlands offer plenty of wide open space for kayaking and canoeing.
In addition, many of our local farm stay operators offer access to the waterways on their properties, where you can kayak, canoe, fish, and swim.
Nymboida National Park is the perfect place for keen adventurers. If camping in remote, unspoilt beauty surrounded by dramatic landforms neighbouring the beautiful Nymboida River sounds like your kind of getaway, point your 4WD towards Nymboida River campground.
Push your canoe out into the river, or take a summer dip while listening out for the distinctive chink of Bellbirds. There are no marked tracks, but experienced bushwalkers will love the wild beauty of Nymboida.
This is a quiet campground and you may well have the entire place to yourself. Even getting there is an adventure. Old Glen Innes-Grafton Road passes through a historic hand-cut tunnel into the stillness of the deserted valley.
Cast your imagination back in time and you may hear the snap of the reins on the Cobb & Co. coach team, the thud of the timber getter's axe, or the cry of the bullocky hauling down the track to the mighty Clarence River.
Beardy Waters, Dam and Woodlands is a great location to stop when travelling to or from Glen Innes Highlands, and is just a short drive from the main township for a recreational day out.
You can visit either side of Beardy Waters - the reserve on the right viewing the dam, and on the left viewing the river.
Kayaking and canoeing is permitted in Beardy Waters - the best launching spot is on the northern side of the Gwydir Highway at Beardy Waters Woodlands.
Fishing is also permitted seasonally: Download Fishing Guide

Deepwater Station is a historic grazing property, farm stay and bush camp located just outside the village of Deepwater.
The 1,625-hectare property is a working farm, running 7,000 superfine merino sheep and 270 Hereford/Angus cross cattle, giving visitors a chance to experience farm life first-hand on one of their farm tours.
All visitors staying at Deepwater Station have access to their 10km, private, double frontage to the Deepwater River for fishing, kayaking, swimming and picnicking. If you're lucky enough, you may even spot a platypus!
