For those with an appetite for adventure and a love of being out on the water, this white water rafting experience will blow you away. Set against the beautiful surrounds of Barron Gorge, you will raft down grade 3 rapids under the guidance of an experienced instructor. Return transfers included.
Your tour starts with a drive into the countryside - that's right this tour comes with return transfers from your Cairns or Northern Beaches accommodation so you don't have to stress about driving! You'll pass through the National Park to arrive at Barron Gorge. Get kitted up and receive a safety briefing and training session with your experienced instructor. Then it's time to get out on the water!
Starting small and working your way up, your small group will take on rapids that range from relatively peaceful to the biggest on the river. With the help of your guide, you'll be a pro in no time! Once you've faced your fears and the adrenalin rush is over, you'll calmly paddle your way to Lake Placid, enjoying the tranquil rainforest surrounds. Here you'll stop for one last group photo and then it's back on the bus to make your way to your accommodation.
Please note that some medical conditions, disabilities of impairments may exclude passengers from rafting including pregnancy. Passengers should disclose any of the above information at time of booking.
