2-Hour Farmers Market Tour with Kayak
The Surfers Paradise Market tour starts by launching our kayaks from the beautiful “hidden gem” of Budds Beach, right in the heart of Surfers Paradise. Experience Surfers Paradise from a kayak, gently gliding on the gorgeous Nerang River past the skyline of Surfers Paradise taking in all marine life and scenery along the way. Photo opportunities are in abundance and our friendly professional instructors will ensure they get the best angle when capturing plenty of perfect memories for you to enjoy. Cruising the river, taking in the nature of the river bays to the dramatic skyline of the high-rises, you’ll be posing in front of Q1 or on the gorgeous nature trail of the Isle of Capri for photos. Our tour includes a stop off at our famous Home Of The Arts, known as “HOTA”, where we meander through the park and gardens, perhaps take a quick peak at one of the galleries and enjoy the lawns for a rest. Our Farmers Markets are wonderful to experience on Sunday you will have the opportunity to walk through the Market at HOTA, a quintessential part of the Gold Coast lifestyle! Grab a coffee or a loaf of bread or simply sit near the lake and watch the passersby.
