The Deua River is a small but extremely scenic river. Its headwaters are south west of Batemans Bay in the Eurobodalla Region, flowing east from the Great Dividing range to the ocean at Moruya.

The river flows mainly in the Deua National Park.

The small scenic river is mostly grade 1-2 standard and if fantastic kayaking, camping and scenic driving.

The river is perfect for wildlife spotting such as the Eastern Water Dragon often basking in the sun.

The river is a perfect family expedition kayak trip and can be arranged by Region X, its part of our “Create your Dream Adventure” range. Details here.



One of our staff who is particularly fond of the Deua is Tom Wells who grew up floating around the little rapids. Tom writes about the Deua on his blog Paper Trail Tramp.
