Our Ormiston Leisure Tour (by Kayak) offers you the chance to treat yourself to the life of leisure as you float on by the golden sandy beaches and enjoy a good dose of vitamin-sea at your own pace exploring the Ormiston waterways, wildlife and marvellous colonial architecture of Ormiston House. This historical site and it’s surrounding 14 acres of equal beauty, is listed on the Queensland Heritage Register. Glimpse the curated gardens from the water along with the natural beauty of the sought after suburb of Ormiston, once a series of flower farms.

We’re located 25 minutes from Brisbane CBD in picturesque Raby Bay Foreshore Park, located on Masthead Drive. There’s plenty of free parking available, and we’re just a 10 minute stroll from Cleveland Train Station.

This tour is suitable for intermediate and experienced kayakers, and caters for individuals, couples, families and small groups.  As a guide we recommend that you have experienced at least 2 of the 1.5 hour tours before embarking on a 3 hour tour. 

Please arrive 30 minutes prior to departure for fitting of safety gear, safety briefing and instruction.

We set off from the beach, and offer help getting in and out of the kayaks.
