Just 2 hours north of Brisbane and only 40 minutes from the coast you can meet Mary in the unspoiled creeks of Mary Valley Country when launching a kayak or canoe and exploring a stretch of the beautiful Mary River, its tributaries or the vast Borumba dam.
Perhaps you only have a few hours to spare or want an expedition through wild forest habitats. Mary Valley Country offers kayakers everything from gentle paddles to full weekend retreats. Experience the peacefulness of floating on water, breathing in the fresh air while Azure Kingfishers dart about or an endangered Qld Lungfish swims by.
This is the river that spawned a community campaign to save it from damming. The Federal Government quashed the dam on environmental grounds. Practise minimum impact tourism and tread softly, leave no trace.
