Water Sports

Here in Queensland we worship the water and it’s where we head to have serious fun. Depending on your hunger for adventure, fitness or relaxation, we have a Water Sport to suit you and with warm water year round, you’ll want to stay and try them all!

  • Jump in a kayak or canoe to explore sheltered bays, islands and waterways. To ramp up the adventure factor, pack a tent and tackle overnight kayaking on a trail like the Ngaro Sea Trail in the Whitsundays.
  • SUP is not just a greeting but a sweet way to work out your core. The calmer, sheltered waters are the best place to try your skills on a stand up paddle board – places  like Mission Beach, Hervey Bay, Noosa, Moreton Island and Tallebudgera Creek to name a few.
  • Have the need for speed?  Churn up the wake on a Jet-Ski or be a board warrior and tear up some glass wake-boarding!
  • When the wind is up, hit the beach and learn to kite-surf on the Gold Coast, Sunshine Coast, 1770 and Cairns.

We love to have fun on the water so you’ll never have trouble accessing equipment hire, activities or tours while you’re visiting – just head down to the nearest body of water and try your luck!
