Our Dedicated Team

At Mount Warning Tours, we are proud of the fact that we are managed by and support locals. Led by Michael Simmons, our team is comprised of knowledgeable tour guides, professional skippers, and passionate outdoor enthusiasts.

On top of being deeply appreciative of nature’s serenity and opportunities for adventure, we are experienced and educated on the region’s waterways, terrains, and accessibility. Count on us to provide you with the necessary equipment as well as guide you throughout your trip.

The Ultimate Kayaking Experience

Our booking offices are located in Griffith Street, Coolangatta and Marine Parade, Kingscliff with taste tours. You can also catch our crew at the Tumbulgum Jetty (Riverside Drive, opposite House of Gabriel) where we have stand-up paddle boarding (SUPs) and kayaks for hire from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on weekends as well as school and public holidays. Bookings for midweek kayak and SUP tours at the jetty can be made by calling 0422 405 011.

The Tweed is undoubtedly one of the best kayaking spots in the Northern Rivers. You can hire equipment from us, and start enjoying the tranquility of a self-guided paddle on the Tweed River and the Rous River.

Fascinating Ecological Experiences

Mount Warning Tours invites you to go on mesmerizing ecological tours on our custom-designed, comfortable pontoon boat. You can go bird-watching, practice your photography skills, or appreciate the wildlife that these two rivers have to offer.

Our cruises explore that narrow and shallow tributaries of the Tweed waterways—areas that are inaccessible to huge boats. Cruises can be scheduled at dawn and sunset, as these are the times when the birds are active and the sunlight makes your photos look magical.

We offer two-and-a-half hour private cruises at reasonable rates. These are available for families, small groups, and individuals who have a passion for wildlife photography.
