    Join us for a guided canoe tour at sunset and explore the marsh at this beautiful time of day. You will see the reflection of the setting sun on the calm waters of the Dunstan River, observe the herons and shorebirds flying back to their roosts and enjoy the sounds of the evening marsh. This time of day is known as the “golden hour” and as the sun sets on the marsh, you will be able to experience its beauties in a new light.
