The Tour

Experience Australia’s most famous rafting adventure. Enjoy an action packed experience filled with fun, thrills and spills on a day you will never forget. Join the thousands of people every year who raft the Tully River in this extreme five hour white water adventure in remote World Heritage Rainforest.

Your day begins after being picked up at your accommodation in our luxury air conditioned coaches. Enjoy the scenic drive to Tully through cloud-covered coastal mountains, clear rivers and streams, fields of sugar cane and exotic fruits. On arrival take a brief stop at Rafters Café, with complimentary tea and coffee and a wide range of refreshments available for purchase. Travel on to the Tully River whilst listening to the Guides give a safety talk, and pick up your safety equipment.

Commence rafting and negotiate up to 45 rapids of varying degrees which include the unforgettable ‘Alarm Clock’, ‘Wet & Moisty’, ‘Stair Case’ and the dramatic ‘Theatre’; all before a taking time to enjoy riverside BBQ lunch opposite ‘Ponytail Falls’ where time is made to replenish your batteries. After lunch commence tackling the afternoon's remaining rapids and if you dare, take the plunge and try raft surfing, rapid swimming and rock jumping with your guide!

At the end of the day, pack up your raft, change into dry clothes and enjoy light refreshments or even a cold beer at Rafter’s Café, Tully, while you watch a replay of your adventurous day on the big screens. Enjoy seeing the day's adventure and action photographs, plus an exciting range of RnR merchandise is available for show and purchase at the end of every day.
