Hardy Inlet

Forests, Reserves and Scenic Spots


The Hardy Inlet is a beautiful spot for families to spend the day fishing, swimming, boating or kayaking. The foreshore area is grassed and there are lots of shady trees to set up for the day under or grab one of the table & chairs to enjoy your lunch. The water is flat and shallow, so it's great for kids to safely splash and swim and the shallow, calm waters make it a safe place to fish also!

For the bird enthusiasts!

Hardy Inlet and the Blackwood River are excellent for boating and canoeing. Look for migratory waders (November to March), Darter and Caspian Tern. Along the Blackwood River you may be lucky to see the Black Bittern! Keep an eye out also for the many wildflowers that can be viewed in spring.
