The extra ‛t’ this tiny town tagged onto the name of its river surely stands for Tourism, because without it Kennett River would just be, well, just that: a waterway.
The charm of Kennett River lies in its minimalism. The community is not much more than a caravan park, some holiday homes and a shop/café on the Kennet River. It’s perfect for sun-seeking families, fishing folk and surfers. Play in the waves, hike to the waterfalls, explore the wetlands reserve and follow the riverwalk to meet the koalas and wallabies and spot colourful birds. Kennett River? T-errific!
