This day of whitewater rafting I will guide you through promises to be one of the most electric, fun, exciting and enjoyable days imaginable, as we wind our way along the magnificent Tully River in the Tully Gorge National Park near Cairns, splashing through over 45 rapids of varying difficulty whilst admiring the tropical rainforest scenery around us, and also take the opportunity to jump from rock formations in to the tropical water below.

Tully Gorge National Park is located in the North of the Australian state of Queensland, approximately 140km from the city of Cairns. The park is full of dramatic coastal mountains, beautiful streams and sugarcane fields, and is dominated by its World Heritage-listed rainforest.

We meet in either Cairns or Mission Beach, depending on where your accommodation is, and from there we drive to the park via the backdrop of the vast sugarcane fields and mountains the region is known for.

Once at the park we then go through all relevant safety gear and information, before tackling the river in earnest.

Over the course of the 5 adrenaline-pumping hours we will spend rafting, myself and other guides will help safely move the rafts over the rapids, as some of them can be quite challenging.

Highlights include the rapids named the Alarm Clock, Wet and Moisty, Stair Case and Theatre, each providing their own distinct and exhilarating characteristics.

During the rafting we encourage everyone to take a look around at the tranquil and idyllic rainforest that lines the rivers banks, as it is truly a special and unique part of Australia.

We finish our day by relaxing at a nearby waterfall, offering the chance to jump from rocks in to the clear water below and to reflect on the epic and awesome rafting we have just indulged in.

This is one of the funnest and most enjoyable activities one can do close to Cairns – book now to experience the thrill!
