Stage 1

“Lake Ellery/Milford”

Stage 1: Chapter 10 of GODZone kicks off at the very heart of the West Coast in Jackson Bay. Sea conditions permitting, teams will paddle out from the bay, around Jackson Head, following the coast to the exit of the Smoothwater River. From there they follow a track for a short way before going off-piste into the lush rainforest to find Lake Ellery. A beautiful paddle and tricky checkpoint to locate (or get lost) before a short river section leads them to the exit near the confluence of the Jackson River.
