Directions

If you wish to paddle down Babinda Creek (bookings are essential), drive to 330 Stager Road, Babinda. You will enter the Creek at this address. When you arrive at one of the two finish points, either call them or wait for the pre-arranged pick-up time and they will collect the kayaks from there and give you a lift back to your car. Both pick-up spots are lovely swimming areas too.

Where are we going today?

Permanently flowing mountain streams provide a rare opportunity to experience the beauty of Mother Nature’s masterpiece. Hire some Babinda Kayaks and embark on a one way Self Tour down these amazing waters. Babinda Creek’s pristine, crystal clear water is teeming with fish, turtles and the elusive Platypus. Don’t miss the opportunity to enjoy a fantastic experience without breaking the bank.

This is a perfect recreational activity for the whole active family. They recommend that children be at least 5 years old and able to swim, as one would expect. Children should be old enough and adventurous enough to fall in (or be pushed in) as navigating around logs and negotiating small rapids presents a reasonable chance for falling in.

Smaller kids can easily share an adult's kayak for no extra charge (let us know and we’ll reserve the best suited kayak for you). Larger kids (starting at about 8 years) often prefer a kayak of their own. They love it for the adventure, fish life and swimming, adults love it for the serenity and relaxing scenic paddle. Very small rapids (better described as ‘ripples’) add that element of fun and excitement along the way. There’s no paddling back home against the current either, just let the current take you through the valley to the finish points where they will come and pick you up.

Any Top Tips?

Their kayaks cope easily with the majority of people. If you are over 110 kg and or taller than average (over 6ft 3in) let them know and they’ll reserve a better suited kayak for you. Double kayaks are also a good option as they provide extra stability..

    Had a fantastic day with the grandchildren and dog. Water so clear you can see the fish and turtles swimming underneath you. Wonderful mountain and wildlife scenery - even saw a water dragon. Will definitely be going again.

    Loved it, especialy after all the rain we've had. The ice-cream at the end was a great finishing touch. Thanks again for a memorable afternoon.
