 Welcome to paradise…

 Our Hekili family is excited to be welcoming you back to tropical north Queensland in July.

After a decade of hosting the Great Barrier Reef Ocean Challenge (GBROC), our commitment is as strong as ever to offer paddlers from around Australia - and the world – another excuse to come back to Cairns. We have listened to your feedback – and for the first time, GBROC 2022 and its sister event, mini G, will be over two, consecutive weekends (Saturday, July 16 and 23). This gives an opportunity to extend your stay with us, while challenging yourself over two distances (17km and 45km) on the best downwind courses in Australia! And if that’s not enough paddling for you, plans are underway for a special, mid-week, twilight paddle so you can take full advantage our balmy winter and stunning coastline.

Keep your eye out for more details of our week-long ‘Paddling in Paradise’ package but importantly, claim the date (Saturday, July 16 and 23), book your flights and accommodation and we’ll see you in Cairns for the paddling holiday of a lifetime!

Our mission is to make your time with us hassle-free. Please talk to is of there's any information or assistance you need - call Sue Lockwood 0438 129 575 or Nora Pennefather 0427 768 375. E: hekili_gbroc@outlook.com www.facebook.com/Hekili.Cairns
