This has to be the most exciting and fun ways to discover the pristine rainforests of the area. Enjoy rafting the Barron River for 2 hours through grade 2 & 3 rapids. Great fun for families.
The Barron river has the advantage of departures all year round, tropical water temperatures and breathtaking scenery and rapids.
The Barron River Rafting is a half day tour and the river is located only 20 minutes away from Cairns CBD, making this a great activity for someone with limited time in Cairns or for those ones who want to combine rafting with a second activity on the day. Visitors have a free morning to organise something else to do!
Each raft is controlled by a highly trained river guide who teaches passengers the correct techniques for rafting so experience is not necessary. Also the guides share the history and wonders of the magnificent landscape around them.
This is a great and fun tour to do in the tropics.
