Tour Description

Hinze Dam Kayaking Tour

Built in 1976, Hinze Dam is the main drinking water supply for the Gold Coast region. Located in the Gold Coast hinterland, approximately a 40-minute drive from Surfers Paradise, this dam offers majestic landscapes and a wide variety of flora and fauna.

Get ready to paddle through Hinze Dam

Our adventure will depart from the Western ramp of the dam, from there we will paddle through the calm and fresh waters for approximately 60 minutes. During the journey, we will cruise amongst beautiful mountain views whilst admiring the peacefulness and immensity of Hinze Dam.

Dining with a beautiful view

Upon arriving at the Eastern side of the dam, we will embark on a 25-minute walk along the top of the dam’s gates whilst enjoying the majestic views. We will arrive at the Dam’s Museum and Observatory where you will enjoy a courtesy delicious hot meal (breakfast/lunch) at Hinze Dam’s View Cafe.

If you feel like exploring a majestic place, full of peacefulness and positive energy, then come with us to experience one of Gold Coast’s hidden treasures!

No experience is required, as you will be paddling in our stable and comfortable kayaks with our professional team who will look after you during the whole tour.

The best part? Our tour guides will take photos during the whole tour, so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the experience, and we will make sure you remember it forever (all digital photos are included).
