Rainforest paddle boarding is a magical experience. We are extremely lucky up here in Cairns because we have lots of beautiful rain forest locations with slow flowing clean tropical waters.
Kuranda Rainforest Paddle boarding
Kuranda is located on the eastern edge of the Atherton Table lands. Its a quick 20 minute drive from the village of Smithfield located north of Cairns city.
We have an awesome location upstream of Kuranda that we head up to for our private paddle boarding rain forest adventures. The scenery is breathtaking and around each corner of the river is another adventure waiting to happen.
Level of Experience Required for Paddle boarding the Rainforest
The magic of this place is that you don’t really need any experience to paddleboard here. The river is as flat as it gets and flows very gently. There are one or two very small rapids, but these are easy to negotiate. We simply approach them and walk around the side. Or if you are game enough you can flow down them for some extra excitement.
How Our Rainforest Paddle boarding Trips Roll
First things first. If you need a lift up to our special location, we will pick you up and drop you off home at the end. Once we arrive there, we get the boards out and give you a beach side demo on how to paddle board before entering the water.
After this, the magic begins. We gently paddle along the river soaking up the natural environment as we go. Bird life is abundant and fish are to be seen in the clean river.
About half way through the trip we stop for a well earned morning tea break Now is a good time to share experiences , bond and eat some fresh tropical fruit.
The second half of the tour becomes even more interesting than the first. The rain forest gets thicker and the river meanders into it.
