What you'll do

Our pick up starts at 2.30 pm I will pick you up from your accommodation then the adventure begins! We head up the beautiful Kuranda range which a world heritage rainforest so the chance to see a cassowary or two is a possibility. As we drive the range you will feel the temperature drop a fraction as its high in the mountains and thick forest so take it in. 10 min out of the rainforest its turns to bush you may see huge termite mounds, kangaroos and bird or prey flying high in the sky. It takes about 1.5 hrs to get to the Lake Tinaroo but the drive is stunning with rolling hills and amazing history which I will tell you about on the drive. We soon arrive at Lake Tinaroo around 4.45 pm we get ready to have all our briefs and hit the water for an amazing SUP experience and take in the colours of the sunset. The wild life is amazing up there, Platypus spotting, pelicans, turtles and the bird life is spectacular. When we hit the water I show you skills, rescues and much more then the tour begins with a paddle around the lake spotting as much wildlife as we can, then the sun starts setting and we start snapping our cameras and lap up the colours of the sky and relax and enjoy ourselves. The tour finishes around 7.30 pm with hot homemade pumpkin soup by the lake and yummy local bread, as you eat and relax I pack up all the equipment and join you for soup, then its back to Cairns.

I'm the proud owner of a small Stand Up Paddle boarding business here in tropical North Queensland. I would describe myself to be total water lover, even on my days off you will find me at river, lake or on the reef. I have spent most of my working life on the water and I have been surfing since I was around 5 and had a regulator in my mouth not long after. As a little girl I always had a calling to be near water I'm a qualified dive instructor and SUP instructor I also have all my first aid qualifications so your safety is my priority. My background started with Shark feeding for the first years of my working life so I'm always up for an adventure. My SUP life began around 13 yrs of age but more recently since 2014 as a tool for healing as my daughter passed away from teen suicide, SUP has changed my LIFE!

Allie picked me up at my hotel for an afternoon/evening discovering a bit more of this wonderful state. During the trip of about one hour and a bit, where she gave a lot of information, we reached our destination at Lake Tinaroo. She certainly knows the rich fauna of the area and we saw many of the birds that populate the lake while paddling. The instructions on how to paddle were very useful. She certainly managed to transmit her passion for this sport. After tasting her home made pumpkin soup + bread and a nice coffee we headed back to Cairns. A wonderful + relax afternoon. Wonderful sunset colors.

Allie is kindness and funny. I joined in this activity by myself and I had great time! 英語が話せなくてもなんとかなりました!Supは慣れれば簡単だし、みんな優しいし、ひとり旅の方にオススメ!それに、オーストラリアの大自然の中のドライブも楽しめる!湖と夕陽のコントラストもめちゃくちゃ綺麗でした。ピクニックも出来て、他にはない体験ができます!

Allie is super fun to spend the afternoon/evening with! She made me feel welcome from the start and we connected so well! I enjoyed learning about Allie and experiencing SUP with someone so passionate about it! It was very relaxing and I felt right at home when we ate pumpkin soup at the campground area after our adventure with a cup of coffee. Thanks so much for a great last evening of my trip!
