The School of Yak aims to actively promote the Hunter Wetlands National Park and Hunter River Wetlands Conservation area’s to the people of the Newcastle, Lake Macquarie and visitors to our region as a place of exceptional beauty to be treasured and valued by all. Our principle tour operation is conducted in the Fullerton Cove conservation area which abounds with natural flora and fauna. In particular this RAMSAR wetland has a high number of migrating birds, with over 30 known species visiting annually. Most afternoons Sea Eagles can be observed all over the waterway, either in flight or in the canopy of the mangrove forest. The best way to explore the wetlands without disturbance to the wildlife is by kayak. A paddler can quietly glide along the shallow creeks for hours and celebrate this beautiful and unique place without ever leaving a trace of their passing.
