Self Drive/ Self Cater Packages

Self Drive/ Self Cater Packages

Australian Kite Surfari run Self Drive/ Self Cater Packages between full service dates all year round! These are available exclusively to kite surfers and their family. This package is basically a BYO and DIY alternative, that saves you money, whilst still delivering an amazing kiting experience.

Self-drive, self-catering adventures. By hiring your own 4WD you can explore all this region has to offer. Choose your path and make the journey your own. We can provide beach shuttle runs, tide permitting, at $40 per person return and to stay in our beachfront cabins is $160 per night. Select your own supplies and bring them with you. Please note the closest shops are at Hope Vale or Cooktown (should you need additional supplies). Please enquire about self drive dates.

We can accommodate groups from between one and 10 people. Organise your own, or we can put you in touch with others that have booked on your date, to share costs. Please note our beachfront cabins can be hired throughout the entire offseason. Contact us for more information on

Please note there is also some camping available, from time to time. It’s $35 per person per night. Camp sites very limited! Bookings essential! If needed – for those without an appropriate 4WD vehicle – we can also provide return transfers between Eddies and our base, at $40 per person return. For more information, please contact us
