Hiking and Bush Tucker
Nothing says wanker more than the words Life Coach. Sure ... Bun Lek Solutions could charge you big $$$ to email you daily positive sayings or movies that a simple Google or YouTube search could give you for free. We could even charge you for advise that we have read from other books like The Seven Habits of Highly Effective People by Covey. Charging people for pithy sayings is not what we are about.

Our professional staff are outstanding in their respective fields and will help support and empower you to achieve the most out of your chosen activity. Discover how fun life can really be and choose one of our activities now. All you've got to lose is that frown!!

There are few better ways to explore the coastline and islands of the Palm Island Group than in a sea kayak. The close proximity to nature that kayaks allow gives detailed insights into the environment both above and below the water. We often have amazing encounters with dolphins, whales, turtles and other marine life while paddling around and over some of the most diverse reef in the world. Add to your adventure by bringing your snorkelling gear and explore the reef from close up.
For those that want to try something different a quick lesson from the helpful team at Bun Lek Solutions , a little puff of wind and before you know it you will be windsurfing across the waves and taking in the blissful beach surroundings at Butler Bay. The bay is protected from the waves by an inshore reef but receives strong offshore breezes to power your board and get the adrenaline flowing through your vains.
Hiking & Bushfoods

Awaken your senses while you enter a world of ancient traditions, as seen through the eyes of your Indigenous guide.
