Departure Information
Departs every day.

The Trip

This is a scenic kayak paddle, down the crystal clear and calm section of Babinda Creek. Since you are the guide you can paddle down the stream at your leasure, stop where you want, and emjoy a really relaxing day.

Babinda Creek flows from the rainforest-clad mountains nearby, so it's usually crystal clear as it winds through forest, paddocks and canefields. If you to a morning tour the wildlife and birdlife you see can be extraordinary, platypus are commonly seen by kayakers here.

The take out point is easily spotted (you'll have a map), and once you've reached there you can either relax streamside for your designated pickup time, or call Babinda Kayaks and get an earlier pickup.

This is a very popular trip amongst Cairns locals, who are often tour-adverse by nature. Keep in mind that this trip does not include transfers from Cairns, you'll need to have your own transportation.

This is a very family friendly trip, kids over 5 years of age are welcome, providing that they can swim and are comfortable in the water. The double kayaks have a 3rd seat for kids between the two main seats.

Half Day start times are 8am or 1.30pm. Full Day hires may start any time. You must reach the end point of the tour by 5:00pm. The normal gentle current of the creek will float you along at a pace where you can reach the endpoint on time without much paddling.
