Echo Creek Adventure Centre is an Award winning Australian business that is committed to educating and providing outdoor experiences to the world.
We are located in the heart of the Tully Valley in tropical Far North Queensland
midway between Cairns and Townsville, situated on a 240 acre cattle property amongst the Wet Tropics World Heritage Area. A great location for nature based activities, weddings, group events, conferences and school camps, excursions or simply a weekend getaway or camping trip with the family.
When you experience the outdoors in Tropical North Queensland you open a gateway to the thrills, spills and adrenalin of activities but also the tranquil, peaceful and abundant natural aspects of the World Heritage Area of the Wet Tropics.
Echo Creek provides the doorway into this wonderful outdoor experience through active participation in the many activities, educational programs, Corporate teambuilding and leadership programs and Special Interest Retreats such as Yoga, Wellness and Raw Indulgence getaways.
Our tours and educational programs provide a wealth of information and knowledge about the Tropical Rainforest Environment but also developing and supporting team and leadership qualities for all. We offer a range of quality products from interpretative bush walks/hiking, local bush tucker tours, journey based trekking, rock climbing to student educational tours which journey you through some of the tropical north’s breath-taking World Heritage Rainforest.
