The Tour

White Water Rafting is the most exciting and fun way to discover the pristine rainforest of Tropical North Queensland, and has the advantage of departures all year round, tropical water temperatures and ease of access to compliment breath-taking scenery and rapids.

The Barron River Tour is North Queensland's most exciting half day tour. Feel the rush of white water rafting within the awesome wilderness of Australia's tropical rainforests. This is a great activity for people with limited time or can be combined with other adventure activities to maximise your day.

Your day starts with a pickup from your Cairns accommodation. You will meet your Trip Leader onboard and be transferred just North West of Cairns to Lake Placid, where the fun & adventure begins! Continue up the Barron Gorge whilst your guides explain the safety procedures. Your safety equipment will be waiting for you upon arrival at Barron Gorge Power station the ‘put-in’ point for your rafting adventure.
