Babinda Kayak - Cairns
A wonderful day in the tropics - Babinda Kayak
"Coolest way to enjoy the river"
This weekend we had a nice visit from one of our friends from home (Perth). What better way to enjoy what best end part of an afternoon than rowing down the Babinda creek?
We finished up in the office for the day, picked up our trusted guard dog (Betty), and arrived at Garry's property outside of Babinda just after 2pm. Now if you haven't been kayaking before like the most us in this group (Betty being the most seasoned rower out of us all), it is a good idea to bring some water, sun screen and maybe some fresh fruit. The weather was warm with a nice cool breeze which helped with the rowing.
The best part about this tour is that you can do it all at your own pace. Whether you choose to drift along the river, or race down with your friends. Why not stretch your legs with a swim in the fresh water or enjoy your break along the banks with some nibbles.
When you reach the end it's as easy as picking up the phone and calling Gary who comes to pick you and your kayaks up and drives you back to your car. This is definitely a trip worth doing and we would happily recommend to anyone. We suggest booking this prior to arrival to ensure that the kayaks are ready and waiting for you (which can be done at our tour desk). Gary's brilliant customer service and faultless organisation means it is hassle free and enjoyable for anyone who is keen to give kayaking a go.
