Babinda Half Day or Full Day Self-Guided Kayaking/SUP Experience

Babinda Half Day or Full Day Self-Guided Kayaking Experience

Nestled in the Valley between Queensland’s two highest mountains is Australia’s wettest town, Babinda. Permanently flowing mountain streams provide the rare opportunity to experience the beauty of Mother Nature’s Masterpiece. 

Kayak down the gently flowing waters of Babinda Creek. A pristine, crystal clear mountain stream teeming with fish, turtles and the elusive platypus.

Take on a couple of mini rapids (or ripples) along the way, stop on a secluded beach for some lunch and a swim, then float downstream to your pick-up point.  What a way to spend a day!

How does it work?

How does it work?

You can hire kayaks for either a Half day (up to 4 hours) or a Full day (up to 8 hours). Half day hires must leave at 8:00am or 1:30pm. Full day hires can leave anytime, but must be ready for pick-up well before dark. Your kayaks will be waiting for you here at the Creeks edge, we put you in, then you paddle downstream at your own pace to the pickup point.

This is a one way trip only, paddling back to the hire location is not an option. A map is provided of the Creek illustrating the start point and the pick-up point. The pick-up point is about three hours paddling downstream and is very easily found.  When you get there, give Babinda Kayak Hire a call and they will come and pick you up.

Babinda Kayaking Reviews

What a great family friendly adventure. We took our young kids (4 and 2 years old) and they loved it even more than us, excitedly pointing out all the wildlife the entire time. Beautiful swimming spots along the way, crystal clear water and nice sandy beaches to stop on. The kayaks were easy to manoeuvre and very stable. Paul was a fantastic host and greeted us with ice creams at the end solidifying my children’s opinion that it “was the best day ever”. I would highly recommend this to families with young kids, as a local we live in a stunning part of the world but it can be hard to explore the outdoors effortlessly with young kids in tow, this was perfect.

Paddling the Creek with Babinda Kayaking is always magical. The water is crystal clear and clean, and paddleboarding over the shallows is just mesmerising as you glide over the river stones below. We always pick fresh guavas as we float with the current under the trees and relax on the sandy banks. It simply can’t be faulted. Paul is a wonderful host who knows how to look after you, is very informative and a great laugh, and always provides a prompt pick up from the finish location. I can’t recommend this enough - for solos, backpackers or families alike (and don’t forget the pooches love it too!).
