Lane Cove is Loving the Share Kayak Facility at Burns Bay Reserve

    On the Australia Day holiday this year, the Share Kayak scheme was launched at Burns Bay Reserve.  The Share Kayak scheme is an independently operated business which has a licence from Lane Cove Council to store their Share Kayaks at Burns Bay Reserve.

    Burns Bay Reserve Lane Cove is accessed via Kooyong Road, off Riverview Street, Lane Cove.  It is a peaceful spot by the water with a playground and sports grounds; it’s a great place for a picnic (read more here).  It now has a shared kayak facility with four kayaks, paddles and personal flotation devices available for hire via the Share Kayak App

    Share Kayak to Expand

    Share Kayak has been so popular they are expanding operations.  The business first started with two single kayaks and two double kayaks.  Another four kayaks will be coming soon, and also some kayaks with fishing rod holders (note you must have a fishing licence to fish in the Harbour).


    The following testimonial was posted on Lane Cove Chat by ITC:

    Handy Tips

    If you book a shared kayak, make sure you have a waterproof watch or a waterproof bag to put your phone and items in so that you know when you have to return the kayak – the kayaks are so popular that if you don’t return, your kayak on time, someone will miss out.  This was the kayak shelter yesterday.
