Babinda kayaking is fabulous! Paul, the host, is friendly and helpful; and the half-day or day can unfold at your pace. Lovely and relaxing, great swimming holes and places to picnic. The water is cool and clear, and saw only two other people during our trip - we had the river to ourselves. Highly recommended.

We did babinda kayaking in the rain and it was so beautiful! Completely clear and such a relaxing afternoon. Paul is a great host and picks you up at the end and drives you back to your car. Take some snacks and stop for a picnic along the way. All in all a fabulous afternoon of light exercise.

Yesterday 5 of us decided to try out Babinda Kayaking, we are so happy that we did as we had a FABULOUS afternoon.
The water was incredibly clear and throughout our paddle we saw birds, butterflies, dragonflies, fish and lush green countryside everywhere.
I had never Kayaked before and felt completely safe and at ease the whole time. The water was pretty shallow most, if not all, of the way, so even if you fall out, its easy to get back in. It was easy to get the hang of and heaps of fun.
Paul gave us full and clear instructions before we left and then we took it completely at our own pace. We stopped wherever and whenever we liked and for as long as we liked, we just had to back at our end destination by the designated time.
Everyone in our group loved it, and we will all be back.

Hi Cherie, a few changes since you paddled, rain has done wonders for the creek, relaxing paddling and crystal clear water with no shallow bits, thanks for enjoying Babinda creek.
