What you'll do

Goldsborough Valley Tour- Half Day Tour
9am Pick up from your accommodation we arrive around 10 am to our destination at Wooroonooran National Park. We start with our safety brief, paddle and board breif. You will also have to demonstrate for safety a rescue and skills and lesson included before we set off. We hit the water, as we paddle upstream we stay on our knees till we find some depth, you will have plenty of time to get up as there is no rush on the river. You get skilled up, and safety being Allie's main priority, she does not paddle until she knows the group is safe. We paddle for about 40 min with a stop along the way as Allie talks about the history of the area, a water stop then we are off again. We hit some light rapids where we walk our boards through the water for about 10 mtrs, then we paddle to our morning tea site and Allie sets up morning tea and you can kick back and swim, sunbake and lap up the chilled vibes of Goldsborough Valley. We stay at the morning tea site for about 40 min then we drift back slowly to the car.

This activity is great for all levels of experience, if your a beginner Allie will have you a pro in no time, if you have paddled before even better Allie will show you some tricks and different paddle technique.
(kids under 8 are free and ride your paddle board)

Along the way to the site there is time to stop for toilets, food if needed.

I should have been born a mermaid! Born to be on the water, I have been Scuba Diving for over 25 years and surfing for the about the same time. I love to share the beautiful wonders of North Queensland and everything it has to offer. I'm well known for taking people on journeys with Stand Up Paddle Boarding and exploring this beautiful part of the world, my passion is taking families and children on SUP as its important to connect with nature and what better way to do this than to be on the water. I am a dive instructor by trade, first aid approved and SUP teacher here living the dream

My partner and I had a magical time SUP along the Yahoo River, and seeing the beautiful Cairns mountains from a different angle. Allie was so lovely, and welcoming and we both thoroughly enjoyed learning from her expertise about the area, and felt her passion for SUP. Highly recommend to all!

I was so lucky that I was the only client Allie had for the day. She is very friendly and we connected instantly. The location was exclusive and we were the only ones paddling there. The view was magnificent and it was very peaceful. It was an unforgettable experience and I will definitely recommend this to everyone who’s visiting Cairns!

A lovely experience in a magical spot, no other people on the river, and very peaceful. Allie was very patient with a beginner! She is also very warm, friendly and open which makes for an enjoyable and fun day.

Allie is a wonderful host who was extremely accommodating, flexible & friendly! Being close to Cairns, the paddle location is a spectacular tropical rainforest river - a must see! River conditions & picnic were perfect.

What a great half a day outing learning to sup in the most beautiful surroundings. Absolutely loved it!!! As we had our own car, we stayed on to explore other beautiful places in the areas that Allie has recommended.
