About Lazy Paddles
Lazy Paddles was founded by Larry Tofler (left) and has been a part of the Tea Gardens community for over a decade. The company has grown to become the premier activity provider in the area.
Our tour of the lower Myall River is so popular customers return every year. We also hire kayaks and launch from Anzac Park in Tea Gardens all year round.
Ask us about hiring a kayak overnight for your next camping adventure on the Myall Lakes. We can also deliver kayaks to your campsite or pick them up once you have completed your paddle.
Our fleet is a mix of single and double sit-on and sit-in kayaks. The kayaks are stable and durable and designed for river paddling. We also have a number of touring kayaks for hire. These kayaks are excellent for multi-day trips on the river.
We look forward to getting you out on the water soon.
Call us on 0412 832 220 to book your next lazy paddle.
