Activity 2: Barron Rafting:
This has to be the most fun and exciting way to discover the pristine local rainforests of the area. Enjoy rafting the Barron River for 2 hours through grade 2 & 3 rapids.
The Barron river has the advantage of departing all year round, tropical water temperatures and breathtaking scenery and rapids.
