Guest Testimonial: One of the most spectacular mornings was spent kayaking on North Creek under the watchful eye of Scott from Ballina Kayaks. Our 17 year old nephew was keen to try a new activity and we were lucky to find kayaking appealed. All the equipment was provided... what a marvelous alternative to our fabulous beaches' C.
