Lake Barrine Kayak - Half Day & Extended Adventure

A volcanic maar surrounded by rainforest

A 9am courtesy shuttle from your accommodation on the Atherton Tablelands takes us to Lake Barrine, with the surface elevation of 730m.  We welcome you to our pick of the crater lakes in the region, here we have plenty of time explore the 4.5km of shore length.  All guests will receive a briefing on our double sea kayaks, safety procedures and for those who haven’t paddled much before, a few tips on kayaking skills.  Mid-way though our paddle, why not take a plunge into the water under one of the giant overhanging fig trees, this is an experience you’ll never forget!

Our expected paddling time is up to 2 hours, however allow up to 3 hours for the whole experience.  We recommend you bring a wide brim hat, long sleeve shirt, clothes to get wet in and water bottle.  Optional gear includes face zinc, a camera and binoculars in a zip-lock bag.  Waterproof bags provided.
