Ballina Guided Kayak Tour
The gorgeous Ballina Shire is blessed with a beautiful collection of sparkling inland waterways and Ballina Kayaks are the local experts when it comes to exploring them with a paddle in your hand. All of our tours are run by Scott Rawstorne who is an Australian Canoeing certified kayak instructor, the creator of the Global Paddler project, and the author of The Paddler’s Guide to New South Wales, The Paddler’s Guide to Queensland and The Paddler’s Guide to Victoria. Unplug yourself from the daily grind and come kayaking with us today.
Just minutes from Byron Bay, Ballina’s lovely subtropical climate makes it possible to paddle here all year round. Our waterways include the Richmond River, North Creek, Chickiba Creek, Fishery Creek, North Creek Canal, Emigrant Creek and Maguires Creek. Highlights of these wonderful places include shipwrecks, historical structures, and Aboriginal shell middens. You might also meet local wildlife like dolphins, turtles, white-bellied sea-eagles, ospreys, and kingfishers. Migratory birds from the Northern Hemisphere also visit us in the summer months.
Kayaks, paddles, and lifejackets are provided. However, you are more than welcome to bring your own equipment instead if you would prefer.
